Farewell from CPE
After 18 years of leading the industry offering training in human-centered design, Cooper Professional Education (CPE) — a team at Designit and division of Wipro — is closing its doors. The COVID-19 crisis has unfortunately made it unsafe (for our faculty and students) to deliver our core business of in-person, highly-experiential learning. As a result, we are folding our education practice into the overall strategic design consulting offerings at Designit.
Founded in 1992 as Cooper U, CPE was one of the first organizations to offer real-world interaction design classes to the public. Over the years, CPE has worked with clients like NASA, Pixar, Cisco, Google, Intel, Microsoft, and Starbucks to build their expertise in design thinking, service design, design research, creative leadership, facilitation, feedback, organizational culture, and brand.
While CPE will no longer exist to offer education services directly, its commitment to teaching designers and businesspeople about the value of design will live on at Designit.
