Why EDI?

Chris chose EDI because of the diversity of backgrounds in the student cohort and the program's emphasis on human-centered design principles. As an undergraduate student, Chris challenged himself to expand his horizons beyond engineering, taking art and design classes that challenged him to think differently. He hopes to continue that trend in EDI, where the students and faculty promote a collaborative yet challenging environment that values personal growth.
