Design Tech understands that an educated person is well-rounded and is one who - in addition to academic knowledge and problem-solving skills - develops life skills and pursues opportunities for enrichment.  For that reason, d.tech offers students courses and experiences beyond the academic and problem-solving curricula during four Intersessions per year, lasting two weeks each. Below are just a few of the many choices which are taught by industry mentors both on and off campus.
