2023 Thesis Mentorship Program Guide

january - may 2023

Industrial design students in their last semester at Virginia Tech work on a final, semester-long project called thesis. This is their opportunity to explore a specific topic of choice, challenge themselves, and demonstrate their design process as they work towards a quality solution. VT’s Industrial Design Advisory Board (IDAB) is working in collaboration with the thesis studio instructors, Brook Kennedy and Yoon Jung Choi, to provide 1-on-1 opportunities for students to meet with design professionals for progress reviews and mentorship. 

Thank You to our 2023 Mentors!
