Erin Rice ’17 has been named one of the top five graduating industrial design students in the nation by the Industrial Designers Society of America.
Rice is the seventh student in the last 10 years from Notre Dame’s College of Arts and Letters to win the Student Merit Award at IDSA’s Midwest District Design Conference.
“IDSA’s Student Merit Award is one of the most prestigious honors for undergraduates in industrial design, and our continued success reflects the quality of our students and the industrial design program we offer here at Notre Dame,” said Scott Shim, a professor in the Department of Art, Art History and Design. “Erin’s projects exhibit excellent traditional core competencies of industrial design, but it is her holistic approach that sets her apart.”
