InnovationSpace at ASU


The InnovationSpace program provides senior-level students with a unique opportunity to complete a real-world product-development project. Using the Integrated Innovation model, teams of top undergraduate students from business, engineering, industrial design, visual communication design and sustainability spend two semesters researching, developing and refining product concepts. Their work includes

  • exploring user, societal and environmental needs;
  • analyzing market trends and consumer demand; and,
  • investigating new technologies.

With knowledgeable faculty and motivated students, InnovationSpace partners with corporations and university researchers to develop product concepts that meet the demands of the marketplace while also improving society and minimizing impacts on the environment.

In 2020, the program will be working with two sponsors: SolarSPELL (Solar Powered Educational Learning Library) and The Center for Bio-Inspired and Bio-Mediated Geotechnics (CBBG).

InnovationSpace is a transdisciplinary partnership between the Design School in the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, the W. P. Carey School of Business and the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability at Arizona State University.
