The partnership between student and faculty resources from the Department of Computer Science of Millersville University and administrative and technical resources from Mission Research, a Lancaster-based company proved to be a fruitful one for everyone involved.  The students had the rare and valuable opportunity of being involved with a project from the conceptual phase through to the completed deliverable.  The University (and the Department of Computer Science in particular) benefitted by forging a partnership with an innovative local company.  Mission Research reaped the rewards of the infusion of resources, which enabled them to research and develop a significant component of a new product; something which would not have been possible within the same time frame without the additional resources.
