The eTech Student Technology Project Initiative

Providing solutions in educational technology requires dedication, planning, time, and most importantly – resources and support.

The Educational Technology Initiative Advisory Committee is pleased to present a new opportunity for students: the Student Technology Project Initiative (STPI).  STPI is an initiative to allow undergraduate students to develop real-world projects that address an educational issue on-campus.  Selected projects will qualify for funding made possible by the Educational Technology Initiative.

Proposals are evaluated as submitted by the Educational Technology Initiative Advisory Committee based upon merit and available funds with preference given to those submitted no later than one month before the start of the academic quarter in which the project will be done.Upon selection, team members are encouraged  to enroll in an independent studies or other course under their faculty mentor

Proposals must be submitted as one of the following project types:

  • The Development category is for new technology or improvements to existing technology.  Possible projects include, but are not limited to: mobile applications, hardware, software, etc.
  • The Education category is focused on building student understanding of existing educational technology.  Possible projects include, but are not limited to: educational workshops, informational videos, event coordination, etc.

Great perks, great experience, and a great initiative to grow technology at UCI for education.  For the application and more information on STPI, visit
