The four-year B.S. Industrial Design program emphasizes conceptualization, design, and production of products for personal, home, industrial, and commercial use, ranging from domestic and consumer products to medical, entertainment, and more. Students learn to design and develop product concepts, visualize them using the latest computer technology, and build models in a well-equipped model shop or computer lab. Students learn presentation skills to demonstrate their creative and unique solutions. Advanced industrial design topics include ergonomics, materials and manufacturing, and marketing.
Cellphones, HDTV and computer monitors, lighting, furniture, home appliances, exhibition spaces, computer-aided design, hand-modeling: all part of the SASD Industrial Design Program.
