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.
