Industrial Design Engineering, AS

Technology and Health Division
Degree S0331

This program is designed to prepare the student for a career in a wide range of industries including product and industrial design firms and fabrication and manufacturing companies. Students are introduced to product development from design through prototyping and fabrication for manufacturing.

Portfolio or prototype development is required on each of the semester levels. In the Level Three certificate and AS Degree course work, this will culminate in a final “senior project,” which is a portfolio that includes two and three-dimensional design, documentation (accountability measures), presentation, and fabrication. This project will demonstrate the student’s mastery of the concepts and methodologies learned during the program.

Students desiring a Bachelor’s Degree should consult with a counselor or an educational advisor to discuss transferability of courses.
