Industrial Design

Industrial design courses witness the coming together of creativity, technical skills, and knowledge at the practical level. These courses are aimed towards providing adequate training to the students regarding the designing of a variety of products which includes automobiles, sports goods, airplanes and such like. The secret behind a good design is an eye of details and practical knowledge. Some of the best designs can turn out to be absolutely worthless if they cannot be put to any practical use.

The students who study industrial design have to research a lot on the current design trends, materials, shapes, market demands and the safety factors. To gain admission into one of the Industrial Design institutes, the applicants have to pass their higher secondary examinations with Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry. All the institutes hold entrance tests to screen the students for the admission purposes.

As far as the career opportunities are concerned, Industrial Design degree holders will be able to find jobs in the manufacturing sector, be it at the government or the private sector.
