Where You Make It Happen

Studio + Resources

EDI Studio

The EDI program provides you with the resources, equipment, and collaborative environment where you can flourish. As an EDI student, you have a dedicated studio space located in the Ford Motor Company Engineering Design Center, a state-of-the-art, environmentally conscious building on Northwestern's Evanston campus. With a range of flexible workspaces that reflect your needs depending on the activities happening that day (and a kitchenette), the studio is a home away from home for EDI students.
