University Of Houston

BS in Industrial Design

In 2003, the Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture at the University of Houston established a new degree program in Industrial Design. It was the first of its kind in a four-state region covering Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and New Mexico. The new program emerged from a well established and respected university located in one of the United States’ largest and most dynamic urban centers – Houston, Texas. With resources unique to the metro area, such as NASA, Texas Media Center and diverse industrial entities, the resources and environment provided an ideal learning context for the discipline of industrial design.
