Course Sequence

The Industrial Design Certificate program is for students who hold a prior baccalaureate degree but now wish to enter the industrial design profession.

The program takes 3 years part-time; a few of the courses can be taken through professional and continuing education at night, but most will be scheduled in the daytime degree program. Students are expected to enroll in 1 to 4 courses per semester (fall and spring). Summer coursework is optional.

Certificate students may transfer or waive up to 9 credits based on portfolio review. Students with no portfolio may take continuing education courses in order to prepare a portfolio.
