Tech for Tomorrow. Today.
OPIM Innovate is an initiative started by the Operations and Information Management (OPIM) Department in the UConn School of business. The goal of this initiative is to give students, faculty, and staff hands-on experience with emerging technologies in business. OPIM Innovate is a great opportunity for students to be able to walk in and learn from other students about how they can use new technology to solve complex problems. Whether you want to learn more about an emerging piece of technology, learn new skills to add to your resume, or have your own entrepreneurial project you want to work on, OPIM Innovate is committed to helping you grow.
Our initiative hosts a number of services from our XR Hub to Gladstein Research Lab located in the OPIM department on the Storrs, CT campus. We have equipped our space with various emerging technologies for our 8 learning modules including Virtual Reality (VR), 3D Printing, Circuitry, Applied tech, Data Analytics, Programming, and many more. Our services include self-paced learning activities called Tech Kits for each learning module, equipment and space reservation for projects, and workshops on emerging tech topics such as blockchain, data visualization, and artificial intelligence.
