Overview

Industrial designers are product designers. They create a wide variety of consumer products such as sports footwear, headphones, wearables and automobiles.

Our graduates are in high demand across industries for the practical skills gained through the program’s hands-on learning environment. These skills include sketching, digital graphic rendering, model-making and computer-aided design (CAD).

Many of your design projects will involve industry collaboration to ensure real-world relevance, rounded out with a work placement.

In the senior years of the Industrial Design program from Humber College , students will specialize in either vehicle design or product design. The thesis project (year 4) is the capstone of the program. Students propose a number of their own topics from which their final project is selected.  Students conduct research to inform their design and then generate their design concept. Ergonomic models, detailed CAD models and a detailed ‘hard’ model are then generated. The whole process and the rationale used for design decisions is documented in their thesis report.
