Program description

The ARUCAD Industrial Design programme encourages students to think critically, analytically, and creatively while designing products, services, and experiences. ARUCAD will provide our student designers with the knowledge, skills, and creative confidence to solve design problems with functional and sustainable product design solutions that are relevant to the needs of people, society, and businesses today through the use of our digital and fabrication facilities, including the FabLab.

The Department of Industrial Design knows that future expertise lies in a human-centred and environmentally sensitive perspective. The mission of the department is to train students who are equipped with the knowledge, skills and creativity required to provide cultural, functional, ecological and sustainable design solutions within the framework of the academic design education given, and the design potential that will raise the standards of both the country and the region in these fields.
