Idea to Prototype (I2P) is both an undergraduate and graduate experience where teams have the opportunity to advance their invention idea towards a real product by performing basic research, analysis, building, and testing.
Teams accepted into I2P receive a $500 reimbursement for physical expenses, course credit, and mentorship from a Georgia Tech faculty member. Applications for I2P are accepted each semester.
