Aligning and synchronizing academic and co-curricular programs is both a challenge and an opportunity in collaborative relationships with external partners. Over the past 10 years, the College of Engineering at Bucknell University has developed a strong and growing partnership with Geisinger Medical Center across multiple disciplines around biotech design and research. We describe an interconnected web of programs has been created that allows these collaborative projects to migrate through multiple collaborative pathways as they pass through various stages of technical development.
