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'll focus on innovative and responsive solutions, products and processes that take into account the next seven generations.

Areas of investigation include:

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

Through extensive research and analysis, you'll be encouraged to develop new product and experience typologies within the context of current and emerging human needs. You’ll incorporate principles from diverse cultures, including Indigenous, to inform sustainable design and last generations.

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 final project of your choice.

The Industrial Design program is recognized by the Association of Canadian Industrial Designers.
