Metal ViceHow are new consumer products designed? KSC’s program approaches the artistic, scientific, and technical aspects from a viewpoint that values sustainability and sound business practices. Hands-on, project-based learning gives students the tools and experience for jobs in this fast-moving environment.

Toward a More Sustainable Future

To move us toward a more sustainable future, our world needs creative change-makers, confident and competent in their design thinking practices and grounded in a framework of sustainability principles to guide their decisions. The Sustainable Product Design and Innovation (SPDI) program was designed to integrate product design methodologies, cutting-edge technologies and hands-on model and prototype building within the context of business enterprise and the liberal arts.

As a SPDI major, you will navigate the design process, relying on your understanding of sustainability and your collaborations within interdisciplinary teams, as you bring forth your own unique solutions to improve our lives on this planet. Faculty mentors orient you to our 53, 000-square-foot educational facility, the Technology Design and Safety (TDS) Center, a net-zero-energy-ready building eligible for LEED platinum certification. There you will learn to propel your initial concepts through a multitude of design iterations using state-of-the-art CAD/CAM software, digital manufacturing technologies (3D printing) and challenging model/prototype construction. You will experience and understand how things are made and the manufacturing processes involved in producing them so you can design durable products, minimize waste, consider the work experience of the makers and create economically-viable products. Your cross-disciplinary studies in management, marketing, operations management and safety will be woven together in capstone courses in product design and manufacturing enterprise.
