The Industrial Design program requires acceptance of an Entrance Portfolio in order to declare as a pre-major in Industrial Design. Students apply to the Industrial Design program after acceptance to the university. A portfolio is a collection of an applicant's best creative work, revealing the applicant's creative skills and presented as professionally as possible. This initial screening process helps to determine a candidate's potential for success within the program. In order to maintain academic program quality in relation to faculty, staff and facilities, the program limits the number of applicants admitted. The school reserves the right to be the sole judge of who shall be accepted into the program. On average, the program accepts 24 pre-majors annually. Historically, 80-110 students apply every year.
Entrance Portfolio examples, tips, due dates, and the application are available on this Admissions page.
