Track 1: Design, Creation and Entrepreneurship

Week one: Product Design

This one-week industrial design workshop will provide a hands-on introduction to design thinking, sketching, 3D modeling, digital fabrication and branding and marketing for new products and systems. Students will be exposed to the design studio environment as well as our production-quality print and digital lab facilities. At the end of the workshop, students will have produced concept sketches, a digital model, a physical prototype and a branded poster of their designs.

Week two: Shark Tank Experience

This one-week workshop will provide a hands-on opportunity to discover what a top business school has to offer in a highly interactive environment. Students will spend the week expanding on their design concept to compete in a “shark tank” entrepreneurship challenge. Each session during the program provides important lessons and activities that help students work together to see how they can be the business leaders and innovators of tomorrow.
