Emphasis is on advancing each student's product design skills towards a professional level.  The focus is on research, the application of a creative and design process and the integration of strategic thinking and user experience to their projects.  Students can elect to have a focus on hard-goods or soft-goods products or both.  Emphasis is placed on developing product lines and brands.  In the second semester students develop a thesis project in an area of their choice.  The semester culminates in the design of the Senior Exhibition, which showcases the student’s individual work to industry and to the public.
