A19: Reading these FAQs and looking around the website will help you to understand our program. Our program has had several names in the past including “Product Design” and “Joint Program in Design.” This year the title and focus has been changed to “Design Impact.”

After reading all of our web materials, the best way to find out if our program is right for you is to visit the campus for an information session specifically designed for prospective design students. These sessions are offered in the Autumn quarter and offer the opportunity to meet professors in the program and visit with the current graduate students in their design space known as the “Loft.” Information regarding the dates of these sessions and how to RSVP are on the website under “Events.” We strongly recommend that students interested in applying plan to attend one of these sessions prior to applying to the program.
