What Is IDEA?
IDEA is a multidisciplinary collaborative initiative that integrates NSCAD Design with Dalhousie's Faculty of Engineering and the Rowe School of Management. The IDEA Sandbox is built around new product development. Currently located in the Waterfront Design Studio, IDEA provides professional mentoring, seminars, programming and space for students, faculty and businesses in support of product development.
Using a design thinking process, IDEA runs a Product Development Bootcamp, where teams of design, business and engineering students and faculty collaborate on the development of viable products that integrate all the professions perspectives.
