desginengineeringmasters Posted March 21, 2021 Share Posted March 21, 2021 (edited) Anyone who decided between any of these programs, I'd love to hear your thoughts! There's such little info online about these design engineering/UX masters. I've been talking to current and past students, but it's still hard to get a clear sense of what I want to choose. I'm still waiting to hear back from Northwestern EDI and MIT IDM but interviewed for both programs. I'm looking for a program with a small cohort with an average age ~28 (I have almost 5 years of work experience so looking to be with a more senior cohort of students). I'm looking for a full-time program where the other students are also all-in and full-time in the program. After the program I'm looking to work as a product manager, design consultant, or start my own venture (potentially in healthcare). I'd like to be around other entrepreneurial-minded people who I could possibly build something with after/during the program. I tend to be more of a "service designer" but also would like to have a bit of experience with technical tools like 3D printing, etc. My background is in software engineering and a bit of business as well. Things I'm looking for in the programs: expanding my network and connections in the design/tech community, be challenged creatively by my cohort and faculty, availability and frequency of meetings with faculty, learning new skills in design, engineering, and business, etc. I'm more of a generalist than specialist, so looking for a program that similarly gives many opportunities in a broad array of topics. In general, though, I'd say I lean more towards engineering and business than design. Right now I think I'm between Harvard Master's in Design Engineering and MIT Master's in Integrated Design & Management with Berkeley Master of Design as a close third. Any help/insights would be much appreciated!! Edited March 21, 2021 by desginengineeringmasters Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
