If you are interested in working with an APEX team, please contact David Lenze, APEX Program Director, at dlenze@psu.edu to arrange a time to discuss your project needs and how they would fit with the capabilities of an APEX team.  Following this initial discussion, you will be asked to prepare a brief project description project (using a template that we will provide).  Your project will then be evaluated for inclusion in the next cycle of projects by a panel of faculty and staff using the following criteria:

  • The scope of the business challenge and its fit for the APEX Program
  • The extent that the project involves multiple functional areas and will serve as a capstone learning experience for students
  • The level of commitment by the client to interact with students as appropriate to ensure a successful project
  • The impact of the project on society (e.g., through economic growth, technology development, sustainable business practices, enhanced human services, or environmental impact)
  • The overall interest of students in the project

APEX projects run over three cycles each year: September through December, October through February, and January through April.  As such, we accept project submissions throughout the year and are continually working to source projects for each upcoming cycle. 

For more information, please contact David Lenze, APEX Program Director at dlenze@psu.edu or 814-863-5761.
