Corporate Sponsorship

Donations from our corporate sponsors help support the CAV, allowing us to host our yearly Spring Workshop, maintain our lab spaces and equipment, and hold group seminars each semester with distinguished speakers from outside Penn State.

Corporate sponsorship provides several benefits, including:

  • Admission to our 2-day Annual Workshop, which includes technical exchanges focusing on new and emerging technologies, as well as opportunities to recruit graduating Penn State MS and PhD students, consult with Penn State faculty, and meet members of our foreign university liaisons
  • One day of advising with any of our CAV faculty members, either here at Penn State or at your facility
  • A tuition waiver for any CAV short courses (offered annualy)
  • Admission to our technical group lunches held throughout each semester, via videoconferencing over the internet, where you can learn about technology developments from leaders within and outside Penn State

In many cases, CAV-based networking has led to cooperation on technology projects between corporate sponsors and Penn State.
