Industrial Design Curriculum
In a curriculum balanced between academic and studio requirements, students are able to develop creativity, critical thinking, visual communication skills, hands-on experience with technology, and the ability to conduct design research in interdisciplinary and industry collaborations. Of special interest are issues regarding globalization and sustainability.
Upon admission to the School of Design’s Industrial Design Program, students spend a total of four classroom semesters learning foundational skills in design and a comprehensive introduction to industrial design. On completion of these courses and two semesters of co-operative education, industrial design students may choose to focus on general product design or transportation design. Students will also take a variety of general education courses, electives and/or directed electives, and other relevant subjects outside of the college.
