Innovation and Design
Thinking in the Classroom: If
your business is looking for creative minds to work on a business challenge
(e.g. product design, marketing, strategic growth, etc.), please contact the
Center to learn about our ideation sessions in the classroom. Students in graduate and undergraduate innovation
and entrepreneurship courses are trained in creativity and innovation methods
that enable a "deep dive" to generate useful ideas. Facilitated
by Center staff and faculty, interactive sessions with students can help you
solve challenges and explore new opportunities for your business.
3D Printing Services: The Innovation Lab’s 3D Printer is available
to the DePaul community. Students are invited to schedule an appointment with
us to use the 3D printer in order to create, design and print your very own
prototype. For 3D printing inquires please contact Program Coordinator, Emily
Doyle at firstname.lastname@example.org and complete this form.
