Through student-defined projects, this capstone Impact Lab leads you to individually and collaboratively expand your professional networks and confidently present your purpose within a professional context. The unit addresses approaches to professionalism in practice, exploration of opportunities for career self-management, and development of a career portfolio. Such self-awareness will enhance your ability to navigate career opportunities and prepare you for the challenges of professional practice. Positioned in the final phase of Design study, this advanced unit provides you with opportunities to extend and reflect upon your professional acumen, expand your networks, and develop a meaningful and purposeful portfolio.
