DFP's 6th Annual Design Showcase

DFP's 6th Annual Design Showcase


We are pleased to invite you to the 2023 DFP CREATE Design Showcase on Wednesday, May 10. This event features posters, demos, and videos from graduate students whose research explores how human-centered design impacts the world we live in.

The Showcase is the highlight of our DFP CREATE Grad Training Program, and is well attended by students, faculty, and industry/community partners. There will be numerous prizes for both submissions and for attendees. After the Showcase, please join us for the networking reception event.
