Sponsored Studios

Partner with us to bring real-world challenges into the classroom.

Collaborative Research, Design and Design + Build Projects are an integral element for the College of Design. Faculty and students are exposed to unique client-facing opportunities that challenge them to develop real-world solutions to actual projects. Most of these studios are interdisciplinary and include designers, engineers, developers, and business professionals that collaborate on practical and meaningful research + design projects in the studios.
