IPD Trade Show: Healthy Women / Healthy World


Stewart Lobby of the Robertson Auditorium

Join us for the 30th IPD Trade Show!

University of Michigan’s Art & Design, Business, Engineering, and School of Information students are gearing up for the 30th offering of the Integrated Product Development (IPD) Trade Show! Members of our community will gather to view and make purchase decisions from the “best of the best” of their work over the past semester in this interdisciplinary course.

IPD is an experiential, cross-disciplinary course that puts teams of students from Art & Design, Business, Engineering, and Information in a competitive product development environment. This innovative course has been featured on CNN and written up in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Businessweek. The course is hosted by the Tauber Institute for Global Operations and is taught jointly by faculty members Eric Svaan of the Stephen M. Ross School of Business and Deepa Butoliya from the Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design.

The Problem Statement: to design and produce a tangible product that would help provide better Health for Women. Products might for example, help improve health for women, in one or both of the categories of reproductive and maternal health.

See the actual products and test them out. Then cast your vote! Network, have fun and meet up with friends, old and new!

Parking is via street meter or there is public parking available in the Hill Street Structure Parking Garage.

The event is free and open to the public.

GREAT LOCATION: Lobby of the Robertson Auditorium, at the Ross School of Business, 1st floor at 701 Tappan, Ann Arbor, MI
