JPMorgan Chase Innovation Center

The JPMorgan Chase Innovation Center opened at UD in October 2011 as an on-campus facility where UD faculty, UD students and JPMorgan Chase employees can work side-by-side on joint applied research projects.  The Innovation Center also provides on-campus job opportunities for UD students. 

The Innovation Center was built as part of the strategic JPMorgan Chase-University of Delaware collaboration established in December 2009 focused on building a pipeline of technology talent through University curriculum, enriching internships and joint research projects to drive innovation. Through the collaboration, a new Global Enterprise Technology (GET) curriculum and minor were established at UD, aimed at transforming the way technologists are trained.
