The Quad Innovation Alliance is a joint initiative between Colorado College, Pikes Peak Community College, University of Colorado Colorado Springs, and supported by the US Air Force Academy (insofar as authorized by federal law*). Students participate in problem-based consulting projects for various organizations and companies. Each project team is comprised of 4-7 interdisciplinary students representing at least 3 of the Quad’s partner institutions. Students are given meaningful direction and assistance by professional management staff, and faculty advise with relevant subject matter expertise.
The program offers students opportunities to develop professional experience, technical skills, and leadership abilities in a diverse, professional team environment. We will be running a month-long virtual summer program that is paid.
* The Quad is not an organization of the Federal Government and USAFA provides no underwriting or implied endorsement of the activities.
