Product Design

This multidisciplinary field involves applying 2D and 3D fabrication processes to produce objects, commercial products, and systems that entertain, enable, and inspire, and transform the way people live. Today’s product designer is multifaceted, with the ability to create, integrate, and communicate ideas across product areas, such as furniture or shoe design, fashion accessories, home and office décor, consumer products, and packaging. Majors develop design skills in two broad product categories—“soft-line” and “hard-line”—through hands-on studio projects and professional internship experiences. They combine business, entrepreneurship, and design leadership to drive innovation and career success.
