To establish a new model of discovery, development, and innovation for the 21st century, one driven by a small, interdisciplinary group of highly exceptional students who fuse youthful spirit with intellectual prowess and business acumen, and who leverage their place within an academic institution to take risks, draw from a network of knowledge, and produce radical innovations capable of impacting society.
To utilize strategic design, systems thinking, and rapid product realization to develop and deploy ideas, tools, and technologies that provide unconventional and effective solutions to complex challenges.
years of operation
We combine a methodological research approach with our multidisciplinary background to drive our knowledge creation.
We specialize in concept drawings which complement full-fledged design models and inform our prototyping process.
Our lab works with the latest ideation-frameworks to initiate our iterative concept development process.
Our team focuses on a user-centric design model for architecting mobile and web based platforms to advance our research pursuits.
Our data analytics team utilizes a suite of analytical and graphic-based tool kits to restructure problems with a unique perspective.
We draw from best-in-class robotics and hardware specialists to create cutting-edge technology.
We are in the process of updating our project portfolio. Please check back in a few days.
We craft meaningful, actionable problem statements which focus on the needs of our users. To gain the insights which drive our design process, we utilize diverse perspectives to discover unseen patterns, pain points, and specific challenges we can transform into opportunities.
Our team values ideation as a crucial component of the design thinking process and the driving force for our most innovative solutions. Brainstorming sessions involve creativity, abstraction, and the application of innovation-frameworks. Our collaborative team environment fosters generative discussions and enable us to explore challenging problems for which we propose unique solutions.
We utilize a diverse suite of media for rapid prototyping and design conceptualizing. Our team specializes in generating illustrative sketches, 3D printed models, storyboards, and CAD designs. We deconstruct ideas to dictate project requirements and design constraints.
From these objectives, we build project timelines and assemble action items. Once tasks have been outlined, we begin the development of our initial prototypes. All prototypes are run through an iterative process to begin testing them against the desired set of design criteria.
After careful evaluation of our rapidly-prototyped solutions, we employ a robust validation and verification process. Our quality assurance method guarantees that our products are best-in-class and implemented as complete solutions.
We test our products to ensure compliance with the defined user requirements.
After ideas are developed and validated, we deploy our final product. Solutions, proposals, or products are sent to administration for discussion and/or implementation.
Once deployed, systems are continuously monitored to identify bugs and issues are resolved. Iterative cycles of development continue to improve the product until the end of its life cycle.
We will ever strive for the ideals and sacred things of the city, both alone and with many; We will unceasingly seek to quicken the sense of public duty; We will revere and obey the city’s laws; We will transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.
