Design & Innovation


The Design & Innovation Community aims to cultivate students’ passions and pursuits around technology, innovation, and the entrepreneurial spirit. Here, geeks, scientists, makers, and designers can develop practical solutions to the world’s challenges. The Design & Innovation Community will enable you to connect with other Bruins to bring your ideas to life.

All students, regardless of major, are invited to participate in this community as we examine how imagination and creativity can change the world.
