U/Akron PhD Training in Biomimicry (Peter H. Niewiarowski)

PhD Training in Biomimicry (Peter Niewiarowski, Doug Paige)

© ktsdesign - Fotolia.comThe University of Akron (UA), Cleveland Institute of Art (CIA), and The Biomimicry Institute (TBI) are launching the first and only PhD training in biomimicry available in the world.  Our vision is to bring together designers, entrepreneurs, scientists, engineers and artists to be trained in the emerging discipline of biomimicry.  By integrating across disciplines and engaging business, academic and public sector partners throughout the training, we will create innovation leaders that not only understand the technical details of biomimicry but who also have the experience and skills to bring about real change in how products and services are designed and manufactured across all sectors of the economy.
