Collaborate With Us

The Barrett CTI offers multiple opportunities for our partners and small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to collaborate with our experienced faculty members and skilled students. Our collaborations have helped solve many business challenges faced by industry such as developing prototypes, designing new products, optimizing services, and providing technology awareness training. All of these collaborations start with an idea brought to us by one of our partners or an SME.

Getting Your Project Started

If you have a project or idea and would like to draw on the support and resources that are offered through the Barrett CTI, we invite you to email us at or fill out the Project Inquiry Form in the link below. Your request will be reviewed by the Barrett CTI team and a meeting will be arranged to discuss project options.

Project Pathways

The type of idea that is to be developed will determine what kind of path the project should follow and how the Barrett CTI will work with the stakeholder. There are two main paths. The first path is for projects that require the support of the Office of Research and Innovation, and possibly funding, to help it come to life. The second path is for projects that align with the educational timeline as part of a scheduled class.
