IPD students are typically juniors or seniors majoring in bioengineering, product design, mechanical engineering, supply chain management, materials science engineering, marketing, finance and many other disciplines. However, there is no such thing as a typical IPD student. Some of IPD's most successful students have been those with extremely diverse academic interests such as theatre major/history minor and bioengineering major/international relations minor.
In 2012 there are 175 students enrolled in the IPD capstone course sequence, working on 26 teams.
