The Industrial Design program builds upon the foundation skills you'll learn in the first year with courses that cover design methodology, aesthetics and form, ergonomics, interface and interaction, design for manufacture, sustainability, and contemporary design issues.
Industrial designers create and develop concepts and designs that optimize the function, value and appearance of products and systems for the mutual benefit of both user and manufacturer. Through theory, practice and history you will gain creative and critical thinking skills to successfully problem-solve in their field.
"Stout has been a great school to grow as a designer and creative. Being here has challenged me to always strive for larger goals and gave me the skills necessary to succeed."
