Design education at the Jacobs Institute

Here at the Jacobs Institute, we offer and host a wide range of hands-on design courses. No matter your major, you can explore the world of design through Design Innovation (DES INV) courses taught by our expert instructors, from introductory offerings in key skills like sketching and prototyping to capstone experiences in which interdisciplinary teams tackle real-world problems. Jacobs Hall also houses design-infused courses offered by a broad range of academic departments, allowing you to connect learning in your major field with human-centered design methodology and technical skills. Here, you’ll work in diverse teams, apply conceptual and technical knowledge, and create projects with real impact.

Jacobs Hall’s flexible teaching studios support innovative course formats and pedagogical approaches, and we welcome design-focused curriculum from all campus departments. The diverse mix of perspectives that comes together at Jacobs Hall creates a constantly evolving community of learning and doing design.
