DIVE Enhancing Existing Courses
Teaching faculty have partnered with DIVE to add design projects to their existing courses. This means you will have the chance to experience human-centered design within courses in your area of interest, regardless of your major discipline or home school. DIVE-approved courses will be offered in a variety of departments, such as Theatre, Medicine, Health, and Society, Human and Organizational Development (HOD), and Mechanical Engineering.
