Product Design

Furniture Design, Industrial Design, and Metals and Jewelry Design—three KCAD programs with a shared history of leading graduates to professional success—have merged into the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Product Design degree, a forward-thinking BFA program driven by where design is now and where it’s headed next.

Industries around the globe are looking for individuals with a broad understanding of design and how to apply it in the world. So, we took the natural step of converging three programs with a common foundation of skills and processes and evolved them into a learning environment that prepares graduates to be big picture thinkers and makers, while still enabling them to specialize in a single discipline. The result for our students: stronger, broader portfolios of work and a highly marketable set of skills and experiences.


About

Industrial designers, furniture designers, and jewelry designers all create objects that respond to human need, challenge convention, and elevate the lived experience. In the Product Design program, the distinct perspectives and skill sets of these three disciplines converge to build on one another, growing designers who have a uniquely broad understanding of the design process coupled with deep expertise in the concentration of their choosing.

From a solid foundation of critical research, ideation, making, and experimentation, you’ll advance to solving real-world design problems in a collaborative and interdisciplinary learning environment that reflects the working reality of 21st-century creative professionals.
