e inclusion policies. From the perspective of economic development, it aspires to find methodologies by which innovators can design products and services for small populations and yet realize adequate market share and return on investment."

Much of the technical education for the program will take place at the Center for Cognitive Ubiquitous Computing (CUbiC), which focuses on designing devices to assist people with perceptual or cognitive disabilities. The center is part of the School of Computing, Informatics and Decision Systems Engineering in ASU's Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering.

Students will also benefit through the work of CSULB's Accessible Technology Initiative, one of the nation's leading efforts to remove barriers to education for people with disabilities. It is led by Golshani.

CSULB was the first university on the West Coast to establish a Learning Disability Program. It evolved into California's first university high-tech center for disability services, which now serves more than 1,000 students with disabilities.

Students are also expected to have opportunities to learn through community service with organizations connected to CUbiC and the Accessible Technology Initiative including the Arizona Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired, the Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center, the Department of Veterans Affairs Long Beach Healthcare System, Barrow Neurological Institute, the Microsoft Assisted Living and Accessibility group, Johnson Controls, Cleveland Clinic and Meyer-Johnson.

Members of the IGERTS program faculty and staff team are already working with research and education partners that are expected to provide internship opportunities for students including the Microsoft Assisted Living and Accessibility group, Apple, Meyer-Johnson, Johnson Controls, IBM, Google, Hewlett-Packard, Intel Corporation, Procter and Gamble, Dow Corning Corporation, Barrow Neurological Institute and Mayo Clini
