Haoyang (Thomas) Chen
2021 Northeast District Student Merit Award Finalist
I'm a senior Industrial Design student minoring in Sustainability at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. During the past few years of studying in this field and working alongside other creatives and under many mentors, I found a deep interest in the engineering and technology aspect of design—something that I continue to explore in everything I do. I enjoy going through every step of the design process, as well as creating engineering-focused design that’s human-centered, practical, and ethical to our society. Using my artistic design, and engineering skills, my ultimate goal is to improve people’s lives, physically and spiritually.
