The Sustainable Product Design and Innovation (SPDI) program educates students who are capable of leading movement toward a more sustainable future. They learn to be creative change-makers, confident and competent in their design thinking practices and grounded in a framework of sustainability principles to guide their decisions. The SPDI program was designed to integrate product design methodologies, cutting-edge technologies and hands-on model and prototype building within the context of business enterprise and the liberal arts. The Sustainable Product Design and Innovation major at Keene State College is a pre-professional four-year program offering a cross-disciplinary curriculum to give the student a solid foundation in the artistic, scientific, and technical aspects of product design and the social and scientific aspects of sustainability concerns.
