These are unique types of studio courses, pairing teams of students with industry partners to undertake real-world projects. The following will be offered in fall 2015.

Red Bull: This Collab will focus on generating innovative and fresh interactive design concepts with sponsorship from Red Bull. Participation in this collab will be highly selective and based on the results of a Design Jam scheduled during the first few weeks of the Fall 2015 semester.

Youth Bike Summit:This course will look at wearable technology from a problem solving point of view within the context of the cultural, political, and social dimensions of urban cycling. Open to MFA DT and Fashion BFA Y3 students. The Youth Bike Summit will collaborate as a partner.

Gaming Urban Narrative:: This course will develop a series of design prototypes for a national traveling exhibit on incarceration, coordinated from The New School’s Humanities Action Lab's Global Dialogues project. The exhibit will be created by teams of students and community stakeholders, working with a common set of guidelines, goals and design framework.

Performative Sculpture: In collaboration with SparkFun Electronics, Students will use micro controllers to create participatory works of conceptual sculpture. This course will also address the history of creative computing, post-internet, post-humanism, and art historical bases for new media art.

Drones and the Environment: This class will function as a primer and a workshop around creating site-specific, architectural, technology-based interventions. We will cover conceptual approaches, pragmatic concerns, and precedents in art and architecture. Our major focus will be around developing and prototyping concepts, which will include a range of technical and non-technical methodologies.

The New Arcade: This collab focuses on exploring how we might use drones to enhance the environment.This class will use a holistic approach in which students will learn, augment, and apply Human Centered Design (HCD) methods according to the students focus areas.
