Academic officials from Iowa State University recently announced the launch of a bachelors degree specializing in industrial design, according to the Chicago Tribune. Students who take advantage of this opportunity will be expected to complete one academic year in the school's College of Design followed by finishing the remaining three years in a professional setting.

The new curriculum will include introductory courses in business, computer programming design, engineering and industrial design. Also, those pursuing this degree will get the chance to work with faculty in the university's new laboratory, which features machinery used on a regular basis in the real-world manufacturing environment, according to the school's website.

David Ringholz, director of the new degree program, told the news source that "students will reach beyond just traditionally designing products and address issues like economic development, social responsibility and environmental stewardship."

Individuals who complete a degree in industrial design can expect a high-pace schedule and career possibilities in several areas. In fact, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that the work of these professionals includes manufacturing transportation vehicles, applicants, medical equipment, furniture and construction equipment.
