Design is the soul of modern technology. It is not just about aesthetics, typography, form it is about intention and realizing that intention. With the emergence of new technological trends, demand for trained designers has grown exponentially and fields like Strategic UXD and User Experience Design have become popular and lucrative career choices. While universities and school scramble to come up with right programs to train the new generation of designers, graduates find themselves in unfamiliar territories upon entering the real world. 

In this groupinar our panelists will go over lessons learned from teaching design, being design managers and business leaders. They will discuss what is missing from design education and propose specific recommendations on what can be done to bridge the education gap.


Topics we hope to cover in this Groupinar:

  • Where the Industry is Heading
  • Academic Research vs Real World Applications
  • Collaboration or Coordination Between Education & Industry
  • What to Expect When Working for a Start-up vs Large Companies
  • The Maker Movement
  • The Growing Need for Technology Education in Design School Setting
  • Client Management to Project Management, How an Idea is Converted into a Reality
  • Design for Wicked Problems (Education, Healthcare, Design for Bottom of the Pyramid)
  • Alternative Careers: Entrepreneurship, Non-profit Organizations
  • Skill Addition After Graduation
