Educational Partnerships

Lunar rovers, mobile health care systems, customizable home surfacesthese are just a few of the topics addressed by students in Art Centers Sponsored Projects. As one of the College's most exciting programs, businesses sponsor studios in which a select group of students across a variety of disciplines tackle a design challenge defined by the sponsor. This unique collaboration between design education and corporate interests not only gives students experience in simulated work environments, but it allows businesses to step out of the corporate environment and view challenges in a new light. Additionally, it's not unusual for companies to find great internsand even future employeesamong the students working on their Sponsored Project.
