Industrial Design

Drawing on its historic contributions to responsible and human-centered design, Industrial Design (or ID) teaches students to use critical thinking and the design process to bring new value to companies, communities and citizens. Professors with expertise in a wide range of areas guide students in researching user experiences to create well-conceived and executed objects, products and systems that make everyday tasks easier.
