I was amazed by the quality of the discussions about design in society. The students not only learn how to design but to think freely. The young team of professors encourages them to grapple with the complex issues of our time. I see an important future in this school.
I visited Ravensburg for the first time in September 2011. I was invited to give a lecture for the Mediadesign course at DHBW. As well as thoroughly enjoying my meeting with the staff and students, I immediately fell in love with Ravensburg itself and spent some hours wandering about with my camera. I have many photographic reminders of one of the most beautiful cities in Germany. You are very fortunate to have such a splendid location for your studies. I look forward very much to my next visit; your students work was very interesting and accomplished I would like to be kept in touch with their progress.
My first impression was confirmed quickly. The program at the University of Cooperative Education offers a perfectly balanced combination of theory and practical project work. The result is an extremely interesting hybrid that leads to diverse opportunities. The heterogeneous composition of the teaching teams from academia and industry results in a high transfer of knowledge. I am excited about the opportunity to share and pass on my experience and knowledge with the students and faculty at the University of Cooperative Education.
