Opportunities to connect with Ohio State Design - Industrial Design, Spring 2021
Thank you for your interest in connecting with the next generation of designers in the Department of Design at The Ohio State University!
This survey, conducted twice a year, will take about 5 minutes to complete.
Our students find connecting with working professionals in the greater design community to be an important part of their education and integral to their transition into the working world.
Each semester, there are numerous opportunities for individuals and companies in professional practice to become involved with the Department of Design: from guest-critiquing during classes, to speaking engagements and lectures, participating in portfolio reviews, hosting field trips or visits, providing internship or co-op opportunities, and even sponsoring projects or classes!
As we continue to build our capacity to facilitate connections between our department and the broader design community, we would love to have your input and participation. By providing/updating the following information, we will have a better idea of how to connect with you.
