The Industrial Design Collaboration with Reutlingen University in Germany offers industrial design students
the unique opportunity to participate on multidisciplinary teams in a workshop focused on sustainability in design. This workshop will team Auburn students with students from Reutlingen on a 5-day challenge to better understand people’s perceptions of sustainable materials relative to product design. This workshop will be led by two Auburn faculty members (Shea Tillman/TBA) and Dr. Martin Luccarelli of Reutlingen University, as part of the 2-credit hour AU course.
