The University of Michigan Tauber Institute for Global Operations presents the Fall 2017 Integrated Product Development Trade Show, featuring innovative products created by business, engineering, information, and art & design students.
- Wednesday, December 6th, 6:30-8:30 pm
- U-M Stamps Gallery, 201 South Division St., Ann Arbor, MI
- Free and Open to the Public
Taught jointly by faculty of the Ross School of Business and the Stamps School of Art & Design, the annual Integrated Product Design course challenges cross-disciplinary student teams from the College of Engineering, Ross School of Business, Stamps School of Art & Design, and School of Information to design, build, and market a brand new product, and then to face free market competition through the IPD Trade Show. This year marks the 21st Trade Show.
The Fall 2017 IPD challenge: Efficient & Satisfying Use of Small Living Spaces
- Visualize the situation of living in a very small urban apartment.
- Consider the offered products, and how each would help to make efficient & satisfying use of small living space
- Decide how you would spend up to $250 of IPD money on these products.
In addition, the student-designed products must be profitable at a consumer cost of less than $250.
Members of the University of Michigan community and the general public are invited to meet the student design teams, test out prototypes of their new products, and vote for the “best of the best” at the Fall 2017 Integrated Product Development Trade Show, December 6 at the new U-M Stamps Gallery in downtown Ann Arbor.
Want a preview? Student teams will design webpages and videos to advertise their new products and release them to the public for on-line voting on November 28. Check out their websites here.
