The Graphic Design program of the Division of Art + Design at IWU requires all enrolled (Minor and BA) students to have a personal computer for their design studies. Design students need ready access to computer technology outside of the classroom. The ability to mobilize projects on and off campus is vital to student learning, as necessitated by the ever-changing design field, rapid technology changes, and the need for collaboration with other designers. Access to readily available technology naturally develops confidence and computer proficiency with every design project student complete.
