I am working my way through my final year of mechanical engineering at the University of Colorado at Boulder, and I am currently looking at pursuing a masters degree in something like Integrated Product Design. I figured the Shapeways community might be a good place to look for more information.
I am especially interested in programs that are a combination of the engineering, art, and business departments, like the "Engineering Design and Innovaton" masters at Northwestern University or the IPD program at University of Pennsylvania.
The schools I've found so far include:
1. Northwestern U
2. Carnegie Mellon
3. Brunel (in London)
4. U. Pennsylvania
5. TU Delft (in the Netherlands)
Do any of you on the forum know anything about these programs (beyond what is on their websites, of course)? Do you know of any other schools with masters programs in integrated product design (or something like it)? (American schools would be most helpful, but international schools would be welcome too.)
Does anyone here have an IPD masters degree (or something similar)? What kinds of awesome things have you done with it?
