Overview

Whether working with industry or acting as entrepreneurs, students will be able to create products, systems, and environments which help to innovate and improve everyday objects and situations.

To become professionals, Industrial Design students from Pratt Institute learn aesthetic values of visual abstraction, from line and color to development of complex three-dimensional form.

Learning outcomes

Industrial Design students study to practice design as an iterative process that includes ideation, sketching, prototype making, and testing of their projects. Hands-on skills, learned in a model shop, are complemented with digital skills, practiced in computer labs. From their sophomore year on, students are taught the importance of critical thinking: the art of observation and discovery, and ability to uncover and formulate real-world problems in need of design solutions.

Faculty members in the Industrial Design department are professional educators and designers; many of them are principals of their own successful businesses and recipients of prestigious industry awards.
