Berkeley Design Challenge: Audio & Education

October 22, 2016  |  In partnership with #Bose, #Autodesk, and #UC Berkeley’s Fung Institute for Engineering Leadership.

In our one day challenge, over 90 UC Berkeley students applied design thinking and real industry techniques to design, build, and market an interactive sound and science educational kit using headphones, earbuds, and custom software. Student teams pitched their ideas to experienced Bose and Autodesk leaders for prizes.

Bose has an active college intern program aimed at attracting engineering talent. Working with Real Industry allows us to show up on campus in unique and targeted ways that are more effective at finding the best students. And, most importantly, Bose is philosophically aligned with Real Industry’s goal of educating students about the challenges and opportunities of working in the audio industry.

Engaging with students on campus is critical for any company wishing to enable a healthy pipeline of new talent. But to build a connection that is mutually beneficial to the students, faculty and the company is a challenge. Working with Real Industry helped give our interactions a great structure and enabled us to have a great engagement with students at Berkeley and Stanford.
