Industrial design is a unique fusion of art, business, and engineering in one dynamic career field. You'll use leading technologies and best practices to design products that improve peoples' lives. Stoke your inner-inventor in this challenging industry.

The Profession
Industrial design is devoted to creating products, machines, and systems from computer blueprints. Designers consider purpose, function, form, and safety of their products before they're released to the consumer. Designers typically work in manufacturing establishments, large corporations, design firms, consulting firms, or as freelancers. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of commercial and industrial designers is expected to grow 10% from 2010 and 2020. However, the choice positions will go to those candidates with those with strong backgrounds in engineering and computer-aided design combined with mature business acumen.

The Program
Industrial design is an industry that is inherently technical. Students who have an interest in the field may do well to immerse themselves in mathematics, engineering, physical science, and psychology. The National Association of Schools of Art and Design accredits many colleges, universities, and technical schools with programs in art and design. These schools offer a rich mix of degrees in industrial design, bachelor's of art, and bachelor's of science. For positions of education and leadership, earning a master's degree is highly recommended.

The Future
Variety and opportunity are the highlights of a growing industrial marketplace. The natural diversification of the business gives graduates an opportunity to specialize in an area of design that meets their strengths. Indeed reports typical job titles for industrial designers that include senior industrial designer, industrial technical sales representative, structural designer, and architectural CAD manager. Budding trends in the industry, according to ThomasNet, include a global marketplace, eco-friendly designs, personalization, and interactivity.
