The MIT IDC is a community of faculty, researchers, labs and students from across all 5 schools at MIT focused on understanding and enhancing the methods, tools, and outcomes of diverse design activities. Together with our sister organization at the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), we focus on design and invention, with an emphasis on knowledge generation (science) and entrepreneurship (implementation).
The IDC space anchors a historically rich and vibrant community of inventors and makers that are both a reflection of and a portal into the larger ecology of innovation at MIT and SUTD.
