Submit a Project

If you are interested in working with an APEX team, please contact David Lenze, APEX Program Director, at 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 during both the fall and spring semesters.  Therefore, we are always working to source projects for upcoming needs.
