Industrial Partnership Program


The MII Industrial Partners Program, originally set up to facilitate the development of strong relationships between individual MII faculty members and Industrial Partners organizations, has recently undergone some revision to introduce a variety of new benefits in addition to previous benefits (Brochure).  These include the ability to offer complimentary consulting services live or through video conferencing, complimentary or discounted tuitions for the web-based training modules, and a new means to facilitate specimen testing and interpretation.  It is believed that these offerings will allow for the development and expansion of very close working relationships with those companies that choose to participate in this fashion.  Industrial Partners membership is available at several levels, each of which carries a specific number of complimentary or reduced fee benefits as shown in the Industrial Partners brochure.  Voting members also have weighted votes in prioritizing and selecting Industrial Partners sponsored research initiatives.
