Business Testimonials


"STTAR students come from college with up-to-date skills, which are crucial to our satellite imagery business. They have taken the pressure off me and helped us become a successful company in our initial year of operation."

"The EPSCoR programs, STTAR and FITT (Faculty in Technology Transfer), helped share the risk in a brand new area for us--working with the universities. It made our decision to proceed much easier. The students and professor are providing the knowledge and skills we need to reach our project goals. They are contributing so much to our projects, it's hard to imagine doing this without them."
