AU CADC - Industrial Design Collaborative with Reutlingen University, Germany



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.

This ten-day trip will also include visiting sites of historical and industrial importance in design throughout the southern part of Germany (Stuttgart, Ulm, and Munich), known worldwide for its heritage of automotive production.
