Design For America @ Carnegie Mellon University is a group of interdisciplinary students who use their unique design, engineering, and social sciences perspectives to confront social issues in innovative ways.
As a chapter of national DFA, we empathize and work with our users as we research, ideate, prototype, test and develop solutions. Learn more about the human-centered design process here.
By collaborating in teams of students with diverse backgrounds and interests, we develop well-rounded solutions and fuse collaboration, leadership, and creativity.
Student-led teams partner closely with local community organizations to identify challenging social issues to design and develop comprehensive solutions that benefit the broader community. We tackle extraordinary challenges in health, economy, education, and environment. Learn more about our community partners here.
