Advising Industrial Design

As with all programs in the Engineering & Design Department, it is strongly recommended new students seek early advising with our department Pre-Major Advisor. The Industrial Design program requires students to submit an Entrance Portfolio in order to be admitted as a pre-major for ID. Students cannot register for ID courses until they have been accepted as a pre-major. Visit the Admissions page for detailed information on this process.  Once pre-majors have completed a set of specific coursework they can apply for Sophomore Review and those admitted will become full Industrial Design majors.  Visit the Sophomore Review page for specific information.
