Investing in the future

& improving the student experience.

With an 85% industry placement for their students in the metro area, the University of Missouri Kansas City’s School of Computing & Engineering (SCE) program focuses on high-quality educational experiences and activities that help shape their students into future professionals. In an effort to enhance their recruitment efforts, improve the student experience, and celebrate the best and brightest minds of tomorrow, UMKC partnered with Dimensional Innovations to amplify the UMKC brand and bring life and color into both existing and new SCE buildings on campus.

85%

Industry placement for UMKC SCE students

 

Branding and signage throughout the School of Computing & Engineering facilities recognize the local and national companies that partner with UMKC. Companies such as Evergy, Black & Veatch, Burns & McDonnell, and more are frequent contributors to the SCE program, as well as top regional Tech and Engineering firms that actively recruit UMKC graduates. DI worked with both UMKC and their partners to cohesively blend the multiple donor branding styles with the university's established branding for a harmonious overall experience within the space.


UMKC leaned heavily on DI throughout the design process to incorporate their partners’ ideas into a cohesive and unified space. With brand activations throughout the space, students can establish familiarity with these firms and be reassured by the number and breadth of university partners and companies invested in their futures.
