Carnegie Mellon's Master Of Product Development Program Plans Expansion

"Hands-on experience in dealing with actual product development challenges is a cornerstone of our MPD program," Cagan said. "Each year we work closely with industry sponsors throughout the duration of the course whereby students, under the guidance of instructors and corporate mentors, focus on identifying, understanding, conceptualizing and realizing new product opportunities. As the program celebrates its 10 th anniversary, we also champion the companies and products that we have helped to innovate."

Previous corporate sponsors for the capstone course, called Integrated Product Development, include Bodymedia, Dormont Manufacturing, Ford, MSA, Navistar International's Truck Group and Monaco RV division, New Balance, Nissan, Proctor and Gamble and Respironics. Increasing student enrollment is expected to create additional opportunities for corporate sponsorship and participation.
