SoBA Bourns Consultancy held its senior design final presentations

On Friday, June 5, 2015, the SoBA Bourns Consultancy held its senior design final presentations at Winston Chung Hall in an open poster board conference.  This quarter, the SoBA consultants served the mechanical engineers who produce actual prototypes of various mechanical devices aimed at multiple industries from healthcare, sports, leisure, to home improvement.

The SoBA consultants work weekly throughout the term with their engineering client offering strategic insight and culminating in a comprehensive formal business plan.  The program is open to SoBA students who have completed the strategic management course and provide the business student not only directed study units, but also the valuable opportunity to work with a real client to bring a product to the competitive marketplace.

The SoBA Bourns Consultancy has grown from its inception in 2012 and includes SoBA students serving engineers in bioengineering, mechanical engineering and in 2016, chemical engineering.
