Industrial Design At Philadelphia University Industrial Design is taught in the best possible context on a campus with a mission to educate professionals. The professions that Industrial Designers typically collaborate with - other design professions, scholars in the liberal arts, business people, engineers, healthcare professionals and scientists - are all represented on this campus in an academic climate where interdisciplinary collaborations thrive.
Our Industrial Design students work together in a studio environment. In the pursuit of their design projects, they develop a very broad range of skills. They learn to network and communicate in traditional and in web based media, draw, analyze, discuss, build models and prototypes and they present their ideas. To inform their design solutions, they perform research using traditional methods and, as dictated by their innovations, they invent new ones. At times they pursue projects independently and at times they work in teams. Students often work on industry sponsored projects that bring real-world criteria and opportunity into our studios.
