The annual Design and Industry student show is the longest student-run event featured in the Cesar Chavez Student Center. Every year, for four days in mid-May, the department showcases a wide array of outstanding work from the following disciplines: Research/Development, Visual Communications/Graphic Design, Product Design and Development, New Media/Digital Design, Materials/Manufacturing/Rapid Prototyping Processes, Computer-Aided Design (CAD), 3-D Modeling, Electronics/Digital Technology, and Graduate Research.
The student design exhibit brings together students, parents, members of the local community, and industry professionals onto campus. The exhibit design course facilitates a unique synthesis of instructional design methodology and professional practice. As a result of this dynamic approach to academic instruction the student participants experience a "real world" design team environment in realization of the student exhibit. This interdisciplinary and interactive design process is indicative of the type of department activity that benefits both the students involved in the exhibit development, as well as those students exhibiting their projects, or attending the show. Many individuals from science, ethnic studies, business/marketing and humanities first learn about relevant design applications and classes they can take in the Design and Industry program. It compliments and enhances their interest in programs other than their own. The peer exchange of information and insights dealing with design, technology, multimedia, and exhibit design provides a valuable exchange to the diverse interests of students from across campus.
