"The best thing about working with the Innovation & Design Collaborative was the students…seeing them get excited about our product and giving us feedback on things that we had no idea we needed.” – Dawn Duvall, ThyssenKrupp

Thyssen Krupp Elevators of America (TKE) approached the Innovation and Design Collaborative to conduct field studies on elevator riders and the design of elevators in various contexts (retail, residential, hotel, hospital etc).  After a lot of interviewing in the field, the teams of students came back and presented their findings to TKE. It was a great example of how industry partners and students in multi-disciplinary teams can work together to envision a better world.
