Who is the Design Day Marathon for?​

The Design Day Marathon promotes the rapid integration of students into interdisciplinary knowledge learning through cutting-edge teaching methods and design tools, and flipping the design teaching to a "learning before teaching" model through a different research approach to enhance the students' learning motivation.

The workshop teams come from the cross-college membership, allowing students and faculty from different institutions to break up into project teams, making the project team composition sufficiently diverse so that students can greatly enhance their sense of honor and participation in the learning process and accelerate their initiative. Over the years, the participating students mainly distributed in 12 countries, including China, Italy, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Sweden, South Korea, Russia, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia.
