Minor in Industrial Design

The minor in Industrial Design will expose students to the field of industrial design, allowing them to better work on multidisciplinary teams where design is a central element. This minor will provide interested students from other disciplines at Georgia Tech accelerated access to both the undergraduate and graduate programs in Industrial Design. The minor has three main objectives related to knowledge, skills, and application:

  1. provide students with foundational knowledge of industrial design,
  2. develop students' skill in working on multidisciplinary design teams, and
  3. enable students to effectively apply design methods to complete exemplary design projects arising in design across disciplines.

In addition, the College of Design offers a separate undergraduate minor in Multidisciplinary Design/Arts History for students in all disciplines at Georgia Tech. The minor requires completion of one of three available core survey sequences in the history of design, in addition to four courses from at least three lists of courses in: history of architecture, the history of industrial design, the history of the city/landscape/garden, history of art and foreign study, and music history. Architecture and industrial design program students must select a core-survey sequence outside their major, or select two additional electives from approved lists.

Interested students should see the Undergraduate Minors page and consult with an academic advisor for more details.
