EDI Impact

Consumer Packaged Goods

From EDI to CPG


If you're looking to build a career in consumer packaged goods (CPG), you'll find that EDI graduates engage in every phase of designing consumer products from research to engineering and product launch. On this page, learn about electives and extracurriculars available to EDI students and explore the perspectives of EDI alumni currently working in the CPG sector.

Electives & Extracurriculars

In addition to our Human-Centered Product Design Studio, students often take electives through Northwestern Engineering, the Farley Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, and the Knight Lab. Outside of the classroom, students work on start-ups at The Garage and participate in design challenges on campus and across the country. 


Here are some of the job titles held by EDI alumni working in the CPG industry.
