Consistently ranked as one of the top ten industrial design graduate programs in the United States by DesignIntelligence, the Auburn Master of Industrial Design (MID) Program prepares students to shape a sustainable future by designing products and systems that consider human interaction, manufacturability, profitability, and environmental impact. The MID Program consists of a thesis based program of study (35 credit hours). Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree in industrial design or have completed a three semester post baccalaureate program. Courses are structured to the student’s specific area of design interest.
The Post-Baccalaureate Bachelor of Science in Environmental Design degree in Industrial Design is offered to students with a non-design background who would like to pursue the first professional Master of Industrial Design. Applicants with a degree from other disciplines may be admitted to the Master of Industrial Design Program under condition that a minimum of 43 credit hours in industrial design will be completed at the undergraduate level. The Post Baccalaureate Program awards an accredited Bachelor of Science in Environmental Design (EVDI) Post Baccalaureate degree upon completion of these undergraduate courses.
