Mission Statement

Situated in a rigorous workshop environment with open studios and dedicated desk space, the Industrial Design Program at Virginia Tech endeavors to facilitate learning by doing and to catalyze a student’s independence – thinking for oneself. This intensive making culture, advocating experimentation and iteration, is part of a curricular foundation derived over 50 years, from our linkages to the legacy traditions of the Bauhaus, Black Mountain College and the Ulm School. The students’ experience culminates in a forward-thinking-global perspective, a capacity for both collaboration and teaching one another, and a sensibility toward ut prosim, the University’s pledge for service.
