A recent collaboration between The Siebel Center for Design and the Department of Aerospace Engineering has explored the innovations of human-centered design. At SCD, undergraduate students in aerospace engineering had the opportunity to practice design thinking, which gives students the tools and flexible structures to solve any problem through the two key principles of empathy and iteration. SCD faculty worked closely with the aerospace engineering undergraduate students to utilize these principles in their coursework, which are also heavily valued in any work environment.

The Sweeney Lab at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign’s has begun researching the effect of a neuronal pathway associated with diet on anxiety and mental health-related behaviors. The possible benefits of this research are essential for students since a healthier diet and mental state can lead to increased performance and cognitive function.
