RISE – Launching innovations that matter
RISE applies design-thinking to generate ideas and prototypes for impact innovations.
We bring creativity to problem-solving and launching innovations that matter. RISE accomplishes this by creating innovative learning environments that engage hands-on learning for real world challenges.
Project-based interdisciplinary education. Through Introduction to Design and Engineering Applications (IDEA) course, students explore design, engineering and sustainability by responding to a design challenge that results in conceptual design, prototype, and/or physical structure for a real world client. By working on interdisciplinary teams, students practice professional skills in collaboration and project management.
Workshops and training for faculty and students. Using design-thinking, RISE facilitates workshops and trainings for faculty on learning innovations to enhance student success. See more about our workshops in “Stories.”
Support to students to launch their ideas. Through mentoring, skills trainings and advising, RISE supports students to launch their impactful ideas. See more about student innovations in our stories.
