What is the University Program?
Here at Material Bank, we are dedicated to the industry we serve. Knowing that material education and exploration is a life-long journey, we are partnering with teaching programs across North America to engage future architects and interior designers at the beginning of their education. Working hand in hand with educators in the classroom, Material Bank provides platform access to students during their prescribed curriculum for collaboration, study, research, and easy navigation through the complexities of material and product specification.
As part of our commitment to the planet, Material Bank incorporates donations of lightly used samples to participating schools for current, hands-on material exploration. On campus events help boost students' experiences with physical palette building, material application, and networking with local professionals to start building key relationships they will rely on throughout their professional career.
Adopting Material Bank in school provides students with the opportunity to master specification details well before they enter their first professional experience.
