UIC Design Students Launch 2018 EPD Projects on Kickstarter

Students enrolled in UIC Entrepreneurial Product Design (EPD) have launched their projects on Kickstarter

The UIC EPD course is a year long immersion in Design Entrepreneurship — a type of entrepreneurship that places emphasis on ideas and making to create and launch products. The class is co-taught taught by UIC Design professor Ted Burdett, co-founder of Strand Design, whose breakthrough Fourneau Bread Oven received start-up funding on Kickstarter.  

Entrepreneurial Product Design is one of the 2017-18 Professional Track Options open to 4th year students in the Bachelor of Design (BDes) program in the UIC School of Design. Year 4 Options courses offer real-world professional experience through industry partnership. In addition to EPD, students select from course offerings in Interdisciplinary Product Development (IPD), Bio-Engineering IPD, Mobile App Design (MAD), and Design Thinking and Leadership (DTL).
