Industrial Design Major (Bachelor of Science)

A student majoring in Industrial Design must complete a minimum of 89 quarter hours in the major consisting of the core courses and technical requirements. In addition, the student must complete required cognates, the general studies program, and all baccalaureate degree requirements as outlined in this bulletin.

Industrial Design is the professional service of creating and developing concepts and specifications optimizing the function, value and appearance of products and systems for the mutual benefit of user and manufacturer. Students learn to analyze and solve diverse design problems from technical, aesthetic, social, and ecological viewpoints. Work progresses from developmental drawings, mock ups and models, to working drawings and prototype construction with manufacturing considerations. The B.S. in Industrial Design offers the knowledge and experiences that prepare students to become competitive industrial designers.
