Designing your own experience.

Integrated Product Design Student Government Association (IPDSGA)

Mission: Penn’s Integrated Product Design students are deeply involved in designing their own experience during their two years in the program.

Formed in 2015, the Integrated Product Design Student Government Association (IPDGA) serves as a means of formally representing the interests of these students within the Graduate Student Engineering Group (GSEG). Comprised solely of students, IPDGA is responsible for liaising with the program’s department, the university administration, and peer organizations to serve the needs of students.

IPDGA’s primary purpose is to represent and serve the interests of IPD students within the University of Pennsylvania. To this end, IPDGA works to:
  • Monitor issues of importance to the department’s students.
  • Host academic, career, and social events for the IPD student community.
  • Organize programs to improve the quality of students’ experience and build connections between students.
  • Augment programming provided by the school and department.
