IDS – 2
2. Interdisciplinary Design Studio
With participants from different disciplines, the second Interdisciplinary Design Studio (IDS-2), that is organized by METU Design Factory with support from METU Technopolis and is sponsored by industry and NGOs, started on January 27th, 2016.
We received 120 applications and 38 students were accepted to the IDS-2. With the mentorship of METU DF faculty and industry partners, we introduce the principles of interdisciplinary collaborative work to students in regards to design studies.
In the eight-week long IDS-2, interdisciplinary student teams will address the themes and/or problems identified by our industry partners. They are expected to develop ideas, designs, and even prototypes. Each team’s work is guided by two academic and one industry mentor. Final products will be presented at a campus-wide ceremony.
