Industrial Design (Minor)

Menu

The INDD minor will introduce the pedagogical framework of object-oriented ontology by exploring the nature of objects and perception. Students will craft objects that build on traditional constructionist thinking while also foregrounding newer maker-centered learning concepts already supported at DePaul through institutions like the Idea Realization Lab (IRL) and the Richardson Library makerspace. They will also explore the systems underlying the objects and devices that they interact with on a daily basis. Through constructing a deeper understanding of these otherwise hidden frameworks students will develop self-efficacy and agency over them.
