State of the Art
The Center for Design Thinking is a central hub supporting the growth and implementation of design thinking across the Manhattanville campus. Located in the picturesque former President’s Cottage, CDT is open to all students for independent study and design-thinking classes. Three floors of state-of-the-art classrooms are all equipped to encourage collaboration, featuring large worktables, whiteboards, projectors, and computers loaded with design software.
CDT’s fabrication laboratory, The FabLab, is where students can create prototypes and make their virtual designs come to life using the lab’s bank of 3D printers, a laser cutter, and vinyl cutter. Engaging in the practice and art of making is a crucial part of design thinking.
