The College of Design has concerned itself from the beginning with preparing designers who, in the broadest sense, shape the world. Design education is more than an attempt to teach a set of technical skills. The environment -- including the spaces in which people live and work, the products they consume, and the messages they receive -- has a powerful impact on how humans function as a society. Good design requires attention and sensitivity to social, economic, political, cultural and behavioral issues. The aim of all curricula in the College of Design is to develop the designer's perception, knowledge, skills and problem-solving abilities.
