Student Contests and Industry-Sponsored Projects

  • Winston Churchill Design Competition
  • Design for Disability
  • American Horror Story Design Contest

Partnership and collaboration with industry is an essential part of an FIT education. From yearly competitions to one-time contests designed to answer a current industry challenge, FIT students participate and win high marks in student contests and industry sponsored projects.

The college is proud to have our students participate in campus-wide competitions, as well as with other leading universities, both locally and internationally. Industry sponsorships allow our students to work with the current challenges in their chosen area of study, connect with professionals in their fields, and gain an audience for their work before graduation. Industry sponsors are able to engage with emerging talent and FIT’s world renowned faculty.

If you are interested in partnering with FIT to sponsor a competition or would like to invite FIT students to participate in a contest you are hosting please review our guidelines and then fill out a proposal form.
