The Next Big Thing: SIP Unveils Innovation at its Finest

From Imagination to Innovation

Our Spring 2023 Student Innovation Project (SIP) Showcase was a success! On Tuesday, April 25, 2023, University of Advancing Technology (UAT) students exhibited their innovative ideas that impressed faculty, staff, peers and the community.

Not only does she host the event, but Art Direction Professor Dapzury Valenzuela also prepares the students for their big presentation through their SIP course. Professor Valenzuela shares, "Our Spring 2023 Student Innovation Showcase at UAT was a proud moment for our staff, faculty, parents, and the local tech community to celebrate the innovative projects students developed. It's an arduous experience that requires graduating students to research, pitch, document, and execute an MVP that's unique to the marketplace. I'm so proud of the continued growth of our SIP program and the way it helps to prepare our aspiring technologists for their respective careers. UAT is always striving to push the boundaries of tech and contribute to the advancement of AI, art, business, computer science, cyber, game, marketing, robotics, video, and VR."
