Innovation Studio Training and Internship
In collaboration with the Center for Innovation, the Jodsaas center is pleased to run the new UND Innovation Studio Training and Internship (ISTI) program.
The UND Innovation Studio is a program for graduate and undergraduate students from all disciplines to interact and discover human centered design as a problem solving method. The Studio consists of two parts: a 7-week training followed by a high-impact internship. The training will provide the foundation of human-centered design while the internship applies that training to industry challenges. Students will refine their communication, creativity, problem solving, and collaboration skills as they navigate the innovation process.
