Industrial Design

Whether envisioning the look of a sports car, sketching a new furniture piece to grace the living rooms of homes around the world, or conceptualizing the look of a revolutionary product, Industrial Design courses will provide the essential knowledge and skills to make those plans a reality. Industrial Design courses combine applied art and science to teach students the essentials of planning the structure of products for marketability, production and consumption. Concepts like aesthetics, ergonomics and usability are featured prominently in Industrial Design courses. Industrial Design courses are sometimes also referred to as product design courses, but can also qualify students for work in other related design fields.

As they work toward qualification in an applied art, Industrial Design courses often feature hands-on tasks, which require students to apply the lessons they learn in lectures and seminars to solve problems or create their own original designs. Industrial Design courses focus on developing both technical and creative skill sets, including elements of 2D and 3D design, software like CAD, and drawing on the history of design for inspiration.
