Where am I?

Design Lab

Design lab offers students an opportunity to solve a real world problem using design principles and technology.  In designated courses, students may earn credit for certain assignments by participating.  Problems are posed by local schools, non-profits, businesses, government/administrative bodies, or by the University itself.  Students have four hours to create a series of solutions that could help solve the problem.  The body that provided the problem will then apply a solution of their choosing and update the students on the progress.

Design lab was founded on the premise that organizing college students of varying disciplines around a specific challenge produces better results.  Students learn more about their colleagues around campus while making a measurable difference in the world.

Design lab is scheduled to launch in Spring 2015.  In the meantime, if you have suggestions for topics that should be explored, please complete the form below.
