About ISD

The mission of the Division of Integrative Systems and Design is to nurture a new generation of innovators who can work across multiple disciplines and create disruptive innovations to solve the world’s great challenges.

Unique Pedagogy

One of the unique strengths of the Integrative Systems and Design program is the integration of design and technology to solve real-world problems. We adopt an experiential project-based pedagogy to nurture the new generation of innovators and technologists. Most of the ISD courses are project-oriented, and each year students are required to complete a year-long multi-disciplinary team project. Students apply their design skills and knowledge to identify user needs, define problems and generate different design ideas. In addition, they use their technical skills and knowhow to create realizable solutions, design and implement the solution through prototyping, test and refine their ideas, and finally put their solution into practice. A purpose-based learning approach prepares students to work on the year-long projects. Due to the multi-disciplinary nature of the projects, the teams comprise students with different expertise. Each student has a different role in the team. Depending on his or her role and interest, an individual learning pathway is designed for each student to acquire the skills and knowledge required to complete the project. Each course in the program contributes to the completion of the project. Active learning and team-based experience are also important components of the ISD program.
