Integrated design is a creative and holistic approach to the use of design to problem solve and tackle real-world challenges. By pursuing an education in integrated design at NWACC, you'll learn how to design, create and innovate through artistic creativity, design-thinking principles, construction methods, and business practices, and in turn, make change in your work, your community or even the world.
The college’s Integrated Design Lab offers a physical makerspace that puts design into practice. Throughout the lab, you’ll find programming that encourages innovation, collaboration and the testing of creative entrepreneurial ideas by utilizing the skills learned in areas of fine arts, design, construction and business.
