The Integration Lab provides experiential learning and serves as the capstone event for M&T seniors. The goal is to provide students with opportunities to work on projects at the intersection of business and technology, enabling them to utilize what they have learned from SEAS and the Wharton school. This will prepare our students to be at the forefront of the technology-driven economies of the future.
Select teams are invited to present their projects in our annual M&T Summit. The summit is a forum for our students, alumni, faculty & thought leaders to present their work to the larger Penn community. Every year, the Summit is structured around a specific theme of societal importance. Students do not have to pick a project on the chosen theme but every M&T senior team is required to submit a business analysis of the project they design and prototype.
For more information, please contact Dr. Sangeeta Vohra.
Student teams choose projects from any of the three tracks and work over the year. Selected finalists are invited to present during the M&T Summit in front of a panel of judges. The top two teams are awarded.
Synthesis track: prototyping, designing, building and making products to solve the issues identified using their own ideas
Analysis/Research track: working with faculty mentor on his/her translational research
Application track: working with firms or start-ups on projects
