Featured_about_310px

The Division of Design educates and trains designers to create and develop concepts that optimize the function, value, and appearance of communications, products and systems for the benefit of both industry and society. Within the Division of Design, there are three majors: Visual Communication Design, Industrial Design and Interaction Design.

The Public Practice Studio is an open collaboration housed in the Division of Design. Our mission is to bring research and design to bear on pressing issues of local, national, and global concern. Founded in early 2012, we work with academic, industry, and community-based partners on such topics as human trafficking, housing and urban development, and environmental sustainability.
