Industrial Design Senior Project Final Online Presentation

The Virginia Tech Industrial Design Program would like to invite you to the Senior Project Online Presentation, coordinated by project advisors Dr. Elham Morshedzadeh and ID Program Chair, Martha Sullivan. This day-long event will be held on Monday, May 3rd from 9:00 AM – 4:45 PM (ET) and you can join and drop off at any time. We divided the topics into 5 themes:

  • Technology: 9:00 – 11:00 AM
  • Furniture: 11:15 AM – 12:15 PM
  • Soft Goods: 1:15 – 2:15 PM
  • Health and Lifestyle: 2:15 – 3:15 PM
  • Product Development: 3:30 – 4:45 PM

Having various audiences is valuable to our students and they would appreciate any feedback you can provide. We welcome all comments in the chat if you are unable to share your thoughts verbally due to time constraints. This is a presentation that shows their effort during their final semester at Virginia Tech. The topics that they each chose are the areas that they wanted to learn more about or what they would hope to start their future career in.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

We have also created a very short survey (4 multiple-choice questions) for each presentation that you can easily complete in a few minutes after each one of them. This final senior project is a prime opportunity for us to evaluate our program and outcomes, so thank you in advance for your input.
