2017 BDes in Industrial Design candidate, Brennan Gudmundson, was selected, following his presentation to a panel of invited design professionals, to be the UIC IDSA Student Merit Award representative at the upcoming Midwest Conference of the Industrial Design Society of America (IDSA). Runner-up in this year's competition is Nabeeha Hussain.
