Innovation ✚ Our innovation practice and methods are applied within corporate-funded interdisciplinary classes, labs, and sponsored projects. Students develop innovative solutions to complex problems guided by faculty from multiple disciplines and design thinking methodologies. Education ✚ We produce innovators through this collaborative practice, and believe innovation is both the outcome of a structured & creative process, and the process itself. Collaboration ✚ We are uniquely positioned within UIC to bring corporate partners together with faculty and students from multiple colleges.
