The Business Solutions Group (BSG) provides an experiential learning opportunity for students that focuses on custom software development and product testing on real world projects for its customers. BSG student employees work hand-in-hand with professional software developers and test engineers in an environment that cultivates and drives them to succeed. The BSG prides itself in offering excellent solutions to customers while providing a quality experience for our students.

The BSG was founded in 1992 as a part of the College of Business. In March of 2014, as a result of the BSG’s emphasis on the technology industry, the BSG joined the Oregon State University School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS). Joining the School of EECS allows the BSG to expand its educational emphasis through academic outreach and increased opportunities.

Along with the move to the School of EECS, and as a result of their shared interests and goals, the BSG recently partnered with the Oregon State University Open Source Lab (OSL) in order to form the Center for Applied Systems and Software (CASS). CASS allows each organization to maintain its unique brand while combining their expertise and giving them the ability and resources to take on bigger and better projects.


The BSG leverages emerging technologies and processes to provide solutions for clients and strives to prepare student employees for the evolving business and technological communities through hands-on experience.
