Industrial Design is the professional service of creating and developing concepts and
specifications that optimize the value, function and appearance of products and product systems to
the mutual benefit of both user and manufacturer. This service is often provided in the context of a
cooperative working relationship with other members of a development group.

Typical groups include management, marketing, engineering and manufacturing specialists.
Industrial designers place special emphasis on human characteristics, needs and interests. These
require particular understanding of visual, tactile, safety and convenience criteria. Industrial
designers combine these considerations with practical concern for technical processes and
requirements for manufacture; marketing opportunities and economic constraints; and distribution,
sales and servicing arrangements. Industrial designers are guided by the awareness of their
obligations to protect and promote public safety and well being; to respect the environment; and to
observe ethical business practices.

Graduates with a Master of Industrial Design have career opportunities in four general areas;
corporate design offices in manufacturing companies, independent design consulting firms,
governmental agencies and educational institutions.

Admissions Requirements: Applicants will be considered for admission on an individual basis
and plans of study will be developed to take into account previous academic and professional
experiences. In addition to other forms, applications must include a departmental personal data
forms and a portfolio (required of students with design backgrounds).

Student Financial Support: Priority is given to students in the major science, social science and
technology areas.
