Where form meets function

Industrial designers work at the intersection of art, business and technology. They enrich lives by creating objects and systems that reflect our psychological needs and social aspirations, provide order and structure for their companies, and improve our ability to understand, interact with and enjoy our world.

Wentworth’s Bachelor of Science in Industrial Design is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD). You will take courses in drawing, model making, manufacturing technologies (such as computer-aided design and rapid prototyping), user research and design history. Much of your learning will occur through participation in studio-based projects and co-op experiences that are designed to complement the studio curriculum.

Where opportunity meets you

As a graduate, you will have ample opportunities to create for mass and private markets in areas such as consumer products, education, children’s toys, sports and medical equipment, footwear, housewares, furniture and exhibition design. Many graduates begin their careers as consultants and in-house designers for some of the nation’s leading brands. As they continue their professional growth, they often advance into leadership roles within their organizations, making top-level decisions as design directors and creative managers.
