About

In this Industrial Design program at Thomas Jefferson University, you will learn to design effectively at the collaborative and chaotic “front end” of the product-development process. 

Overview

In the Industrial Design program from Thomas Jefferson University you will work with product users, researchers, businesspeople, engineers and manufacturers to create products and systems that are better at serving their users, societies and the world at large.

We like busy people, because busy people are ambitious, curious people. Many of our courses are taught in the afternoon and evening, to allow flexible scheduling for students who have outside obligations.

Our Four Areas of Focus

  • Informing design through creative research into user needs.
  • Working closely with business, engineering and other disciplines to design platforms and systems- not just isolated objects.
  • Designing intelligent products for the "internet of things," integrating hardware, software and electronic interactivity.
