Gain an in-depth knowledge of industrial design, materials and processes in our state-of-the-art facilities.
Take the design process from beginning to end
Sheridan’s Industrial Design program gives you the tools to create smart, innovative and meaningful design. You’ll go through the entire design process — from research to finished product. You’ll look at design problems and imagine, develop and test solutions for specific audiences. Working with our other studios, you’ll connect design with creation, broadening your knowledge.
In this program, you’ll use the latest technology to prepare you for success in the industrial design industry. You’ll learn both digital fabrication methods and hand processes. Access to our state-of-the-art FAB LAB (with 3D printers and laser cutters) and our amazing faculty and students in other studios gives you a broad skill set to get you ready for a rewarding career.
Get a foundation in all Craft and Design studios
Our program provides a collaborative, interdisciplinary approach to craft and design. You’ll major in your studio of choice while building skills in the four other disciplines. You’ll work with students and faculty from across all five studios on interdisciplinary projects that bring together a range of expertise and experiences to explore the potential of contemporary art, craft and design.
This program contains a mandatory internship for all students during the summer (May-August) between the 3rd and 4th years.
Internships are a form of work-integrated learning that links classroom learning with work experience within a professional environment. Internship work terms are related to the academic studies of the student and may be paid or unpaid. The work terms provide an opportunity to learn by doing. You’ll apply theory to practice, develop a meaningful view of the working world, and cultivate an awareness of yourself as a professional.
Many graduates are local and international leaders in the field, finding employment in top design firms or establishing independent studio practices. You may choose positions in design and manufacturing industries, arts service organizations, or galleries and retail operations that specialize in craft and design, or pursue a graduate education at a variety of universities throughout North America and abroad.
