College 3 x 5: Product Design/Industrial Design Programs
University programs in Product Design – also referred to as Industrial Design – train students to become professionals who bring ideas to life. Industrial designers are part artist, part entrepreneur and part engineer, trained in multidisciplinary programs where students design products that benefit consumers, industry, and business; create designs for medical and computer applications, transportation and environmental projects. The iPod, the Volkswagen Beetle, the Eames Lounge Chair, the slinky dog, the Electrolux vacuum cleaner. All of these iconic designs were once just ideas being tossed around in design incubators. Here are five undergraduate programs for future Product Design professionals:
·The goal of ASU’s Integrated Innovation curriculum for Industrial Design students is to produce design solutions that have value in the marketplace, meet consumer need, and benefit society and the environment.
·Senior-level students may collaborate for two semesters with students across disciplines in ASU’s InnovationSpace to research, design and develop a product for real-world use.
