This is a single point reference for the Industrial Design program to plan the semester in advance. The weekly "Thought Leaders" lecture series will bring in experts and entrepreneurs to share their story with us. We will also use this to plan our courses and classes around industry events, like IDSA conferences, portfolio reviews and visits by alumni. As a student, you will be able to plan the whole semester and know important dates related to each project. This is a new initiative for our program to keep everyone on the same page.
