Our mission is to advance the field of design through research, practice, and education. We enable the creation of innovative products, services, and communications that address society’s most pressing issues, including environmental sustainability, access to education, access to effective and affordable healthcare, and economic and social justice. Our programs promote a collaborative, diverse, and pragmatic approach to design that prepares our students to thrive and lead in a world of rapid technological and cultural change and imagine the world from the perspective of others.

We offer a Bachelor of Design (BDes) degree in the following majors: Industrial DesignInteraction Design, and Visual Communication Design. At the graduate level, a Masters of Design (MDes) degree is available.
