Emily Carr University of Arts + Design - Bachelor of Design, Industrial Design

Short Bio:

He is one among the students in his grade who had shown immense exertion and development consistently throughout the program. Also he never failed to bring a sense of positivity among his peers which was very rare among the rest. He has that mix of an uplifting frame of mind and the conviction that he can always refine himself every day and that has made him come this far and would keep him going in the future. Sustaining with such an attitude in a rigorous program like the international baccalaureate is what every student has to have and I find a tremendous amount of it in him.

College Info:

“At Emily Carr University, the design degree has evolved into a human-centred practice focusing on the social, technological, and experiential needs of contemporary society. Our design majors encourage you to be leading ‘Citizen Designers’ in the new creative- and knowledge-based economies, mindful of the power and consequences of design across a range of fields.

Focused on collaboration, you will benefit from projects that are intentionally modelled to mirror professional and research project structures, gaining experience working with realistic workplace criteria and constraints. You will also learn various methods of design prototyping, development skills, insight, and direction by applying logic through making and re-making. ”

Course Info:

“An Industrial Design degree evaluates and delivers cultural, economic, historic, ecological, social, technical, and symbolic value. You’ll learn about the way we communicate with others, find pleasure, comfort, and safety in activities and products, and how we overcome our physical and psychological limitations. Industrial design combines theory and process with practical knowledge, preparing you to develop a relevant, personal design practice of your own.

The Industrial Design program is rigorous and hands-on emphasizing an understanding of human needs. Through research and user-centred methodology, you will learn to interpret needs and desires in aesthetic, material, and ergonomic terms. You will explore and prototype in real time and space, choosing to be a generalist or specialist as you progress. Areas of specialization include household or recreational products, electronics, medical and health design, hardware, soft products, ceramics, exhibitions, furniture, material production, and research in sustainability. ”
