Gain hands-on skills and training as part of a team investigating the commercial potential for a real Cambridge invention.
“I was one of the first students who joined i-Teams. The experience really shaped my career, as I changed professional course and from an engineering student doing his PhD, became a business consultant and then project manager, and I have now founded my own company”
George Lentaris (i-Teams and Founder of EnerVibe)
By joining a Technology i-Team, you will work for a term with students from across the University and a dedicated industry mentor. You will investigate the commercial potential of a real Cambridge invention, gaining hands-on skills and experience. Past i-Teams projects include Raspberry Pi, AQDOT, Cambridge CMOS Sensors, Sphere Fluidics, Cambridge Nanosystems, Immaterial Labs and many others.
Projects for this course are:
Apply by Monday December 11th for the Lent Term Technology i-Teams course. Teams will be notified by Friday December 15th.
The first session will be on Monday January 15th at 7pm, when you will meet the inventors behind the projects, and then sessions will run every Monday at 7pm through to March 19th with a final presentation session on Thursday March 22nd. See the i-Teams syllabus for details. Sessions are held in the Institute for Manufacturing.
All teams meet on Monday evenings which includes a training lecture or workshop and time for team meetings. Past i-Teamers estimate that their projects needed about 4 hours a week of individual effort in addition to the weekly sessions. As part of their projects, team members will need to contact external industry experts by phone and email – some calls and meetings may need to take place during office hours.
Technology i-Teams is open to all post-graduate students (including 4th year undergraduates) and post-doctoral researchers from any discipline, as well as any member of CUTEC or Cambridge University Entrepreneurs
In Lent term 2018 we are also running a new Medical i-Teams course on Tuesday evenings in partnership with the Cambridge Academy of Therapeutic Sciences. See here for details and to apply. You are welcome to apply for both programmes but please make it clear which programme is your preferred one.

Please include a covering letter indicating which project most interests you and why, and a brief CV of your background and experience. You are more likely to secure a place on a team if you specify a second choice project.
