Considering a career in Industrial Design?

Industrial Designers conceptualize and develop a variety of manufactured products and related systems. They work to optimize and balance form, function, aesthetics and economics by considering both user and supplier requirements in the design process. Industrial Designers draw on their creative and technical abilities to communicate ideas through multimedia presentations, drawings, and models.

Industrial Designers have a unique opportunity to take social and ecological responsibility by examining and refining a product’s life cycle. They consider a number of complex and interrelated issues ranging from sustainability, technology, globalization and individuality through the design process.

Examples of Industrial Designers’ work include: consumer products, packaging, furniture, exhibits, graphical user interfaces, environmental graphics, and brand identities.
