industryXchange robotics


The College of Engineering’s industryXchange brings together industry, Penn State faculty, and government agencies to jointly explore collaboration opportunities for research and student engagement. Since the inception of industryXchange in 2017, initial collaborations fostered at the annual event have spurred $2.5 million in direct sponsored research agreements between the University, industry, and governmental partners, as well as industry support to federal awards.
