The required INDD First Year Studio summer sequence is offered to students in good standing who meet the following criteria: completion of twenty-four credit hours of university work or with the approval of the department head. Students are not required to have completed the INDD freshman model curriculum before enrolling in the summer semester INDD First Year Studio. The First Year Studio sequence is only offered in the summer semester.
Acceptance and Progression in the Professional Industrial Design Program
The department maintains the right to select the most highly qualified students for admission to and for continuation in the INDD professional program. Enrollment is restricted in upper-level professional INDD studios (second, third, and fourth year) and is based on INDD GPA. Students not admitted into an upper level professional INDD studio may retake the summer studio sequence in subsequent years and are re-ranked against new applicants and available resources in that year level. The department reserves the right to retain original work accomplished as part of course instruction.
After a student is accepted into the summer semester First Year Studio, he/she must make at least a grade of C or higher in studio courses in order to be considered for progression in the program. Grades below C in studio courses 1310 through 4210 must be repeated. Design courses must be taken in sequence unless otherwise approved by the department head. A portfolio and presentation are required for graduation.
Special Opportunities for Qualified Students
The Department of Industrial and Graphic Design Study Abroad programs are design experiences, with students sharing studios and workshops at colleges and universities in England, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Taiwan, Hong Kong.
