Jacobs Design Showcase

April 22, 2020 | 9:10 pm

Join us for our Winter 2020 Design Showcase!
Wednesday, December 9 + Thursday, December 10

This two-day, virtual version of our semesterly Showcase highlights student accomplishments and course work with our students’ peers, the campus community, and the greater Berkeley public.

The Design Showcase is a great way to learn more about the courses and student projects taking place at the Jacobs Institute, even with¬†distance-learning in place. As we all continue to adapt to work-from-home practices and remote instruction, we remain hopeful and inspired by our students’ flexibility and motivation to further their design skills and to expand the possibilities of Design Innovation.

The Showcase will include synchronous presentations and asynchronous, published project sites. Please check back closer to the event for a complete schedule and affiliated links.

Courses and Projects Participating

Some courses and groups will be sharing project presentations live, and others will be sharing projects through websites and portfolios. Published projects and their affiliated links are listed below the schedule of live events.
