Yale University’s Center for Engineering Innovation & Design (CEID) is a hub of creativity. Housing 3D printers, power tools, and wet labs, it is a dream come true for any engineering student. The CEID was designed as a collaborative engineering environment, where students could create novel devices with real-world impacts. The embodiment of this “research to practice” principle is the CEID’s Summer Design Fellowship, an award given to students who wish to combat an existing problem in the world of engineering.
- Even though it’s only four years old, the Center for Engineering Innovation and Design (CEID) already has an impressive résumé of nurturing startups.
- Each of these projects is in a different stage of development, from early testing to a fully-blown company backed by grants and investments, but each started within the CEID’s window-lined walls at 15 Prospect St.
- Whether a student’s project starts in a class, a childhood memory, or a random curiosity, the CEID has no bounds.
