Jacobs & MDes Design Showcase

April 22, 2020 | 9:10 pm

Join us for our Winter Design Showcase, December 8, 9, and 10th! We are thrilled to be back in person this semester for our favorite event of the semester. The Winter Showcase will include an extra day focused on MDes courses and student projects.

We invite all students and campus affiliates to join us in celebrating student work and accomplishments, including work from our courses, student clubs, and the Innovation Catalysts grant recipients. Because of access restrictions, only students, staff, faculty, and invited guests will be permitted to the in-person Showcase, but many courses and projects will still offer published project sites for virtual participation. Student and Campus Affiliate RSVP link.

Join us in celebrating the end of the semester, with raffles, prizes, and more!
