The Weiss Tech House encourages and supports students in the creation, development, and/or commercialization of innovative technologies. The technological domains of interest are broad, including, but not limited to, information, energy, materials, manufacturing, communication, entertainment, medicine, and transportation. The primary constituency of the Tech House is undergraduate students interested in technological innovation. However, the Tech House is inclusive, and seeks involvement from graduate students, faculty, staff, and members of the outside business and technical community.
