Jacobs Design Showcase

April 22, 2020 | 9:10 pm

Save the date for the Spring 2021 Design Showcase!
Wednesday, May 5 + Thursday, May 6

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 features synchronous and asynchronous student presentations and published project sites. Please check back on the first day of the showcase for participating links.
