DDI Spring Event Highlighted Integrated Design Across Campus


     The Delaware Design Institute Spring Event “Integrated Design” was a success!

     The event had a record turnout of participants and guests,
including University of Delaware faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduates students from across the campus.
Over 150 people were in attendance to hear and see the impact of design research.

     University of Delaware Provost Domenico Grasso and Dean Kathleen Matt of the College of Health Sciences stressed the importance and relevance of design research at UD.  Panel Presenters James Cole Galloway of the UD Physical Therapy Department and Ralph & Steve Cope of Accudyne, LLC. shared their stories of design research having high impact for various communities and populations, such as children & adults with limited mobility.

     The Design Showcase featured research from UD faculty and students, including transdisciplinary courses led by Terry Harvey (Computer & Information Science) & Tony Richards (Art), and by Tony Middlebrooks (Public Policy & Administration), Jules Bruck (Plant & Soil Science), & Jon Cox (Art); UD student research projects, such as the First Step participants from Health Sciences, Mechanical Engineering Senior Design teams; and UD student clubs like the Assistive Medical Technologies Club, Design & ArtiCulture Club, and TEDxUD.

We look forward to next year

and another high-impact event featuring design at UD!
