All students participate in a review session to evaluate their top needs with Industry experts.  These experts provide guidance on choosing the final needs that students will pursue as projects within the CMTI.  The session gives you practice presenting in front of corporate executives and serves as a networking experience that brings you in direct contact with leaders in the medical device industry.  In prior years, these events have been fruitful for students.  Nate Couper (former CMTI student) was later hired by John Longuil (CEO at FTT Manufacturing) whom he first met at one of these sessions.
