If you are looking for a profession that’s a unique blend of art and science, the Industrial Design program at SIUC’s School of Art and Design provides this opportunity. This program enables students to learn about what it takes to design and develop new products in a changing, global society. The faculty’s extensive professional experience helps students obtain an understanding of professional realities. The curriculum prepares students for a wide variety of career options ranging from specializations like trade show design to product design opportunities with corporate teams or staff positions in consulting firms. Students also learn how to set up their own freelance or consulting design business, and they work on ‘real world’ projects with our corporate sponsors. The annual Design Alumni Day event helps students learn directly from our graduates’ experiences and provides a direct link to the professional design community.
At the start of their second semester of 200-level Industrial Design courses, Industrial Design students must have the required hardware/software pending the outcome of portfolio assessment.
