Relationship with UC Santa Barbara Pays Off for Technology Leader: Capstone Courses are Critical

FLIR Systems is a company that specializes in the design and manufacturing of infrared cameras. FLIR offers a diversified solutions portfolio that serves the government, defense, industrial, and commercial markets. The company’s Goleta, California office has been the fastest-growing division, employing more than 500 people and focusing on sensor development and core thermal cameras.  According to site leadership, part of its “secret sauce” has been its partnership with UC Santa Barbara, which began small but has evolved and strengthened over the last 10 years.
