Engineering Strategies & Practice (ESP)

Become a Client


In order to provide our students with real-life scenarios, we are looking for volunteers to act as clients, throughout this learning process. What does this mean?

  1. You will need to provide a project or a problem with a written description using the online Client Submission Form by early December.
  2. Commit to a 30 to 60 minute meeting with your student team once per month in the Winter term, from January to March.

What types of projects are we looking for?

Projects may involve designs for a facility, a process, or a device.  Your problem/project does not have to be technically complicated. For example, students have successfully completed space redesigns, equipment designs, accessibility designs, inventory systems, virtual facilities, and energy and time-saving systems.

For additional examples, please visit the
Past Projects section of our website.

If you think that you might be interested in becoming a client, but have some questions about the process or your project, please contact the ESP Office.

  1. If you would like to volunteer as a client, you can do so easily by completing the online Client Submission Form by early December.
  2. The ESP Office will contact you confirming the suitability of your submission.
  3. The assigned student team will contact you in late January to arrange the first of three meetings in the Winter term.
