Industrial Design

Industrial Design influences, alters and supports almost every facet of human behaviour. In creating artifacts and gaining experience as an industrial design student, you focus on innovative and responsive solutions for humankind’s interface with the world.

Areas of investigation include:

  • consumer and commercial products
  • furniture
  • interaction and experience design
  • strategic creativity
  • applied innovation.

Through extensive research and analysis, you're encouraged to develop new product and experience typologies within the context of current and emerging human needs. 
Core design studios develop a methodology of research, analysis, strategy, development and execution, strongly emphasizing concept development and strategic and applied innovation.

Courses in design theory, material processes and technology, drawing and graphic communication and professional practice all support studio work. The senior studio culminates in a focused thesis project of your choice.

Graduates of the Industrial Design program are recognized by the Association of Chartered Industrial Designers of Ontario.
