The Collider Cup is SCET's all-star showcase of the best student teams each semester. Come watch teams pitch to panels of professors, investors and industry experts as they vie to win the grand prize, the Collider Cup!

Every semester we partner with an investment fund/angel investors who offer our students an opportunity for potential funding of their startup/student venture. 

We also preview SCET's classes for the next semester and provide more information on our Certificate in Entrepreneurship & Technology. Students can learn more about our classes and on how to become involved at SCET and our programs.



Everyone who is interested to learn more about SCET should attend - whether you want to take SCET classes in future or meet professors and industry professionals! Be sure to RSVP to join us.



Our Collider Cup is held at the end of the semester during RRR week on campus. The exact time and location changes every semester so make sure you sign up for our newsletter and follow our social media in order to get up-to-date information regarding the event!
