M.Des Industrial Design
Duration: 2 years
The students admitted to our M. Des. Program in Industrial Design at SCID come from a variety of undergraduate streams including commerce, arts and humanities, engineering, architecture, science, and design.
The SCID’s M. Des. (Industrial Design) is a four-semester program focused on training highly valuable and professionally relevant graduates. The specialization streams include: Design for Sustainability of Socio-Economic and Natural Environments, Interaction Design, Universal Design and Design Management.
Industrial Design deals with products, services and systems addressing usability, form, function, aesthetics, material, technologies, and sustainability. Our students explore creative thinking and problem-solving processes to bring value to companies, communities and people. Our focus is on designing products, systems and services that make life easier.
We balance creativity, technology, cultural concerns, and environmental needs, exploring materials, production techniques, aesthetics, the emerging fields of Human Computer Interaction (HCI), Artificial Intelligence, and social issues in both local and global contexts. We encourage our students to create solutions that are empathetic to the end-user and have contextual insight.
