Access to Personnel
Corporate Sponsors may contact Center personnel directly to discuss research, technical, or educational issues. Members of the Center will visit the Corporate Sponsor for technical discussions and offer special seminars or technical courses.

Research Fellowship
In conjunction with support of a research project at a level of $70,000 per year the company will have the opportunity to have an undergraduate working on a related non- proprietary project.

Patent Rights
Patent rights for sponsored research can belong to either the Sponsor, the University, or both, as negotiated.

Research Review Meetings
Corporate Sponsors will be invited to participate in annual Research Review meetings, at which the research results of the Center will be presented by graduate students, faculty and post-doctoral research associates.

Special Assistance
A Corporate Sponsor may request the Center's assistance in evaluating or performing research of specific interest to the Corporate Sponsor. Center personnel will respond to each written request and submit a proposal in an area consistent with the Center's objectives. Acceptance by the Corporate Sponsor will be subject to a separately funded and negotiated agreement.

Corporate Sponsors will receive all nonproprietary manuscripts prior to publication and research reports that result from work conducted at the Center.

Corporate Sponsors can participate in summer courses, short courses, and open seminars offered by the Center at reduced rates.
