College of architecture, design and construction
Dean and McWhorter Chair
One of the most important elements of my industrial design education has been my experience in the studio. The hands-on experience that I get in the studio enables me to apply my knowledge and the new skills that I am developing to actual projects. Individuals and companies that support our studios – like the Emerson Studio in the School of Industrial and Graphic Design – help cover the costs of materials and provide guest lecturers from industry. These partnerships help introduce students to real-world experiences that we will encounter in our careers.
