Design & Innovation at Purdue

Nov 16, 2023

Purdue's Design & Innovation program is the future of entrepreneurship education.

Every entrepreneurship class has a fundamental challenge: turning theory into action. Unfortunately, that is where most courses fall short, except for Purdue's Design & Innovation (D&I) minor.

Led by Dr. Greg Strimel, the D&I minor is a game-changer. It's where classroom theory meets real-world action. Every class in this program is designed to create tangible value – a rarity in academic settings.

Professor Abrar Hammoud, a brilliant mind in the program, reinforces this approach with her focus on empathy-driven design at scale. She teaches us that understanding the human element is essential in emerging tech – a lesson that is reinforced through open and inviting dialogue during class.

The hands-on approach is electrifying. It's not just learning; it's doing – a method that fuels momentum and ignites a desire to achieve more, faster.

The impact? Unmatched. I've witnessed more startups and genuine founders emerge from the D&I minor than any other department at Purdue. It's a testament to the program's effectiveness and its unique position in fostering true entrepreneurial talent.

Bottom line, if you are a Purdue student and looking for a quality education when it comes to entrepreneurship and creating value, look no further than this phenomenal program.
