Student Work

Design projects are geared towards providing a platform for students to apply what they have learned in their courses to solve real design problems. Students are encouraged to be creative and imaginative, while not losing sight of the need to develop practical, viable, cost-effective solutions. As part of the design process, students explore both abstract and the theoretical ideas in conjunction with pragmatic considerations.

An integral component of our design curriculum is service-learning, in which students develop design solutions to meet the needs of the local community. Service-learning projects not only benefit the end users but also give students the opportunity to work with real clients and real project situations.
