Design Studio is a yearlong project learning experience within the Raikes School. In Design Studio, teams of juniors and seniors partner with sponsoring businesses and government agencies to design and develop real-world, software-based solutions meeting each sponsor’s needs. Students gain architecture, technology, process, project management, teamwork, and leadership skills essential in today’s professional development world. Design Studio gives students and sponsors the ability to interact and create innovative software-based solutions, while benefiting from the support of Raikes School faculty and facilities.

The Design Studio class works with local and regional companies such as Microsoft, Hudl, Spreetail, Mutual of Omaha, and many others. The projects go through the entire software development life cycle. These projects vary in subject matter, but all end in an innovative technology deliverable. Students are able to work with numerous exciting technologies including .NET, JavaScript, machine learning, data analytics, Web Services, mobile, cloud, artificial intelligence, etc. and get to learn from and collaborate with many experts in the field.

Currently, we are planning to do between 16 and 19 projects next year with teams made up of five to six very talented junior and senior students. The experience students would receive through these projects is unmatched from any other class on campus or even in most Universities. This is truly a unique and very beneficial opportunity. There are also several options with how Design Studio can fit into your academic plans and count towards your degree and graduation.

If you are going to be a junior or senior this entire upcoming academic year, please come join us on Feb. 21 at 5:30 p.m. to learn more about this project based class and becoming an Associate. The session will be held in the Kauffman Center (north of the Student Union) in the Great Hall (room #122). There will be complimentary pizza and pop provided.
