Integrated Product Design

As an Integrated Product Design master’s student, Penn Engineering has challenged me to not only understand engineering practices and theories but to successfully apply them through the design and construction of tangible products. This has provided me with an entirely new engineering perspective, as there are so many intricacies of the design process that cannot be learned without first-hand experience.

More than 250 years ago, Benjamin Franklin, founder of the University of Pennsylvania, envisioned an academic institution where classical learning would be united with a sound practical education in the arts and sciences. In Ben's own words, students ought to receive everything that is practical and everything that is ornamental. Today Penn, the oldest university in the nation, is fulfilling that vision by preparing students for a technological world, a world where leadership goes to those who have learned how to combine the practical and the ornamental.
