The Bachelor of Fine Arts in Design Art (Product Design) offers a curriculum in design methodologies in an environment conducive to innovative thinking. Beyond problem-solving skills and in-depth analysis of users, markets, and cultural values, students also learn to redefine problems and question traditional methods while developing new means of seeing and thinking.
Through close interaction with faculty in small studios and classes, and with a dynamic laboratory and workshop for producing new forms, students gain the experience, knowledge, and vision to create innovative work of strong conceptual value.
