Frequently Asked Questions

What is Blueprint's project structure?

Blueprint's project structure consists of 4-5 project teams, each with a project leader, a designer, and 4 developers on the team. Each project team is in charge of creating technology resources for a specific non-profit they work with.

How are client team interactions conducted?

The client and the project leader communicate on a weekly basis to ensure the project’s progress. Meetings occur throughout the project engagement, beginning with at least one mandatory project scoping meeting with the project leader at the onset. A formal midpoint presentation will be given in Week 5 of the engagement, and the final recommendation will be delivered at a final presentation in Week 10.

What resources does Blueprint have to ensure success?

Our club recruits some of the most hard-working, passionate, and brightest students at UC Berkeley, just like you. Through effective leadership, frequent check-ins, and an organized project timeline set with our clients, we hope that the combination of talent, dedication, and care will result in projects that benefit the non-profits we work with.
