Berkeley Certificate in Design Innovation Open House 3/9

Join us for an information session and open house for the newly program on Friday, March 9th at 310 Jacobs Hall, 12 noon, for more information on the Certificate and a chance to speak with its academic committee and advisors.


The Berkeley Certificate in Design Innovation (BCDI) assumes that innovation does not come from just one area of study, but requires the integration of many modes of technology, knowledge and thought. The cross-disciplinary, cross-departmental partnership between the College of Environmental Design, the College of Engineering, the Haas School of Business and the College of Letters and Science’s Arts and Humanities Division hopes to guide undergraduate students across UC Berkeley’s campus to the critical need for design thinking, regardless of their major.


The Certificate’s current course listings can be found here. For more information on BCDI and the open house event, please visit our website and join our google mailing list.
