The Industrial Design program is focused on the study of techniques, processes and concepts needed in the design and development of products and systems. As a discipline that takes into account aesthetics, functionality, manufacturability and marketability, industrial design can be described as the intersection where art, science and technology, and marketing meet.
Not only are they expected to be skilled in developing new designs and innovating existing products, Industrial Design majors are expected to be adept at providing specifications for production. Industrial Design majors must be keen in perceiving the needs of an ever-changing market and proficient in translating these into design solutions that integrate Philippine traditions and indigenous expressions with the current global trends.
