SCAD graphic design students working together in classroom

Innovation studio

Every year, SCADpro generates more than 50 discrete industry-sponsored projects across 40 disciplines, pairing innovative companies with the brightest creative students, alumni and professors.

SCAD students are the designers, thinkers and influences of tomorrow. We integrate multiple disciplines, offering partners innovative concepts and solutions. We research, develop and deliver polished and professional results all within an academic setting.

Program structure

Projects are scheduled during 10-week quarters, according to the SCAD academic calendar, and are developed at least one quarter in advance. Partners will participate by meeting with their SCAD teams at least three times to deliver design briefs, conduct midpoint reviews and attend final presentations of concepts and deliverables.
