About Design Showcase

Design Showcase is the signature fundraising event for the Hillier College of Architecture and Design at NJIT. With alumni and sponsor support, the event engages and connects hundreds of alumni, students and professionals.  

Now in its 15th year, proceeds from Design Showcase support have paved the way for student initiatives and innovative programming including animation and 3D print labs, a motion capture studio and a digital fabrication lab featuring a robotic arm.

In 2018, the School of Architecture and the School of Art + Design celebrated their 45th and 10th anniversaries respectively. The Hillier College of Architecture and Desgin continues to embrace technology enabled design and is committed to a broad intellectual foundation preparing our graduates not only as young professionals but also as engaged citizens.

We are grateful for our alumni and industry sponsors who represent small and large architectural firms, government agencies, builders, real estate developers, entrepreneurs, designers, and innovators supporting our hard working and talented students.
