Cedarville Welcomes Industrial and Innovative Design Major

by Public Relations

Cedarville University recently joined forces with the International Center for Creativity (ICC), located in Columbus, Ohio to develop an industrial and innovative design program (IID), with classes beginning in the fall of 2010.

Students will spend their first two years on Cedarville’s campus and then head to Columbus to gain hands-on, "craft-centric" experience at the ICC studio classrooms.

The IID program will be taught in a modular fashion, providing intensive and concentrated focus on specific areas of study. Instead of jumping from one subject to the next, students will spend three or four consecutive weeks on a particular topic before advancing to the next level of expertise.

Students choose from four specific tracks within the IID program: consumer product design, transportation design, interior space design, or architectural and exterior space design. Each area offers career potential, and since students will have experience in all four areas, they will be even more versatile as they seek employment and build a portfolio of relevant work and research.

Located in southwest Ohio, Cedarville University attracts 3,200 undergraduate, graduate, and online students to more than 100 areas of study. Cedarville is a Christ-centered learning community recognized nationally for rigorous academic programs, strong graduation and retention rates, accredited professional and health science offerings, and leading student satisfaction ratings.
