Working with DTC Students at Northwestern University

March 21, 2013

There is no better way to learn than to experience something first-hand and work through a problem in the real-world. The Design Thinking and Communication (DTC) course at Northwestern University gives students the opportunity to work with real clients to solve problems while also learning to communicate with a variety of audiences.

Michael Prince and Jody Libman, owner of Trianon Development, worked with a new group of DTC students this quarter (see last quarter’s project here) to create a more sanitary way to open public restroom doors.

The class was divided into four teams and last Saturday, March 16th, each team presented their final project at the Winter 2013 Design Expo at the Ford Motor Company Engineering and Design Center. We were extremely impressed with each team’s hard work and dedication and the outcomes were fantastic!
