Information systems students generated an emergency plan for the Indianapolis International Airport, which the site continues to use today. Logistics and Supply Chain majors worked with the Department of Homeland Security to develop computer generated models that is helping Delaware County improve infrastructure and planning for natural disasters.
These are among the many real-world experiences we call immersive learning, and their blend of hands-on learning and professional experience outfits students with the confidence, expertise, and connections to excel in our fast-pace, in-demand field.
Faculty mentors may invite you to apply for an immersive experience or you may see one publicized through Ball State’s Office of Immersive Learning. Either way, you will need to apply for an open project, then your faculty advisor will prompt you to enroll. With so many engaging immersive courses, we encourage you to sign up for several during your time at Ball State.

Executives from more than 25 firms—including Eli Lilly, Red Gold, and UPS—collaborate with students and faculty mentors at the Logistics and Supply Chain Management Center for Excellence (LSCM Center).

These renowned centers pair robust, industry-driven curriculum with immersive projects that prepares students for in-demand, high-tech jobs. Professional connections formed at these and other Miller College centers and institutes outfit you with the confidence and connections to excel.
