Design Thinking

Design Thinking

When researchers combine their expertise in various disciplines to solve a problem, they find more practical answers than if they work alone. Their solutions transcend the confines of a single field, allowing problem solvers to adapt to industry needs. UNT is at the forefront of collaboration, looking at the world in new ways to push progress beyond invention to innovation. Checkout the 2017 edition of UNT Research magazine for more.
