Why EDI?

David decided to join EDI to buttress his technical background with a more creative and user-based approach. As an engineer, it is easy to get lost in the technical requirements related to an emerging product or solution and lose sight of the why. David hopes to leverage the EDI program to become a more holistic problem solver and surround himself with like-minded students and faculty.
