Our IIT Institute of Design (ID) faculty is internationally recognized for promoting a learning environment that enriches perspectives, leads to new thinking, and empowers students to tackle large, ambiguous problems. Our goal is to give students the methods and skills to improve lives and generate value for businesses and society.

Aside from leading coursework and assisting with student projects, all full-time ID faculty have active research initiatives. Students will have the opportunity to participate in this research, applying methods and frameworks from coursework toward innovative problem solving.
