Industrial Design from Rhode Island School of Design explores design as a vehicle for addressing social, cultural, environmental and other concerns, recognizing that design is not simply a professional service, but rather a way of connecting individual interests and values with a social framework.


Industrial Design from Rhode Island School of Design endorses the notion that the most valuable design opportunities today are those promoting the preservation of our environment and a better understanding of human behavior.

Projects during the first year help enhance and expand individual industrial design methodologies, both through direct practice and discussions regarding case studies and product history. This helps to define personal value systems, working methodologies and the means of effectively engaging audiences in dialogue. The study of history and theory is also fundamental to the program and series of seminars on relevant contemporary issues encourages dialogue among students as they develop their own perspectives on design.

Graduates with Industrial Design from Rhode Island School of Design will be able to:

  •  predict the impact of their design approach
