>   Design Department 


"The Department of Design has an exciting collection of professional design programs that focus on bringing technology into relation with human needs and societal development. Each individual program is made stronger through its relationship and interactions with adjacent programs in this unique academic collection of design disciplines. Starting in the first year, students are exposed to technology and critical thinking not only focused on physical and digital tools but also thinking structures and conceptual tools. It is our hope that our students move into professional practices that positively affect the lives of those around them where they do not forget that design is first and foremost about people. Enjoy the exciting student work evidenced in this online gallery and understand it as the beginning of a trajectory that will evolve over the lives of individual students as they start to take ownership over their work and the impact they wish to have on the world.”
