Google UX Design Challenge

Design at Columbia offers a 8-week Design Challenge in collaboration with Google UX, which provides a small group of exceptional students with the opportunity to hone their collaboration skills, gain real-world experience, and create a piece for their portfolio. The students work in small groups, mentored by Google UX designers, to tackle a Columbia-related design problem and design creative solutions using Google technologies. The final products, a Figma prototype and presentation, will be presented to the mentors at Google’s New York City office.

Applications are due Friday, February 2nd @ 11:59pm
