3rd Annual Clorox Product Design Competition & Tech Talk

Clorox will be on campus April 4 & April 5 to host our 3rd annual Product Design Competition & Tech Talk! Please see the attached document for more information. This year, teams of 1-4 members will be tasked to come up with a new product innovation that solves a common consumer frustration, and then present recommendations to a panel of judges. There is no need to prepare in advance! Just bring yourself or a team representing your society and put your skills to the test. Participants will have the chance to win great prizes and gain exposure with a top consumer products company. The design competition will take place during 1 hour time slots on April 4. The competition will be in rooms TB 114 and TB 101 (Transportation Building). After the competition, please join us for our collaborative tech talk at 7 PM, April 5 in Noyes 161. Students and Clorox R&D employees will work together to walk through the phases of product development. Winners from the design competition will be announced at this time as well! Hope to see you there!

Capital One Research Park Tech Intern (Spring and/or Summer 2017)

Capital One’s Illinois Digital Campus Lab at the University of Illinois Research Park is looking for Tech interns to join its intern program during the Spring academic semester and/or Summer Session.   Interns working during the academic year are expected to log 10-20 hours per week in the lab during normal business hours.  Summer interns work full-time, 40-hours per week, on-site.  The iDCL is one of 8 research and development centers at the bank.  What makes the iDCL unique is its standing as the first and only “lab” located on a university campus.  We like to consider ourselves as the “tip of the spear” focusing on a project model of Research + Proof of Concept.   Focusing on a project model rather than a specific functional area inside our technology business affords us the opportunity to work on a variety of exciting topics – Cyber Security, Cloud Computing, Mobile Development, UI/UX, Frontend Web Dev, Backend Web Dev, APIs, Machine Learning, etc.

Qualifications:

  • Currently enrolled as a full-time student at the University of Illinois Computer Science or Engineering major is preferred but not required.
  • Solid technical / programming background required to aid the matching process of intern to project and vice versa
