ID Schools

This is a list of all schools in the United States with a program offering a degree in industrial design or a related design discipline at the undergraduate and/or graduate level. The schools are listed alphabetically within each state. 

Schools with an IDSA Student Chapter have a Student Chapter Advisor listed. This individual is a member of the industrial design faculty at the school who is an IDSA Professional Member. The Student Chapter Advisor provides guidance to the student officers and members of the chapter, organizes and conducts the annual Student Merit Award competition and serves as a role model and leader. 

Schools which have been evaluated and accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art & Design (NASAD), using its standards and guidelines, are listed as NASAD Accredited. IDSA Professional Members in academia review and make recommendations on the standards adopted by NASAD.

IDSA published an IDSA Student Chapter Showcase in the Winter 2014 issue of INNOVATION. Be sure to check out this showcase sponsored by College for Creative Studies.
