University research leads to license deal
Jon Pratt, the director of the technology incubator at the university, teaches the innovative research class, which is sponsored by the National Science Foundation.
“Students are challenged to find commercial markets for the technology they are given. That was the technology one team was assigned, and it ended up with (Tech) negotiating a license,” Pratt said. “The students were very excited. It’s a 400 level class, and we have engineer and business students, graduate and undergraduate students. We have a diversified team that works with diverse prospectives.”
