The Product Design and Innovation program was created with the mission of meeting current and future manufacturing needs in southwest Michigan and beyond. Through coursework in the Frostic School of Art, the Haworth College of Business and the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences, in addition to cooperative educational components which place students within industry settings, Product Design and Innovation graduates will be uniquely equipped to create the future of design. The first cohort of students began coursework in the fall of 2017.
