ICPF 2019 Student Design Presentation Competition

By AICC Staff

March 25, 2019

The ICPF Teleconference this past February included ICPF’s 2019 Student Design Presentation Competition. Three student teams from Cal Poly and the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA), were tasked to show, tell, and sell their designs (that won first or second place in a separate 2018 AICC design competition) by explaining the objective, the research conducted, design, and other background. One Cal Poly team secured first place. Second place went to the UTA student team, and the second Cal Poly student team won third place. All three teams received a cash prize. These exceptional students have posted their résumés on ICPF’s Career Portal and are using it to locate spring 2019 career openings in the areas of sales, production and operations management, and design.

Utilizing ICPF’s Career Portal since this past August to post 2019 openings, two ICPF Corporate Partners already have hired over 40 student interns and upcoming 2019 graduates.
