Design Laptop Program INFORMATION

The College of Design Laptop Program helps Design Students purchase, use, and have assistance with maintaining their own laptop computers. This plan allows the studio and computer lab to be joined and portable. Curricula and coursework continue to be revised to optimize integrated learning with digital technology. The Design Laptop Program offers an option for mobility, and is useable anywhere within the College, or from a remote location via networking. This helps make the design studio technology environment rich, portable, and accessible.
