Pratt ID Tech

Industrial Design Technology I course is an immersive deep dive into all aspects, methods, and stages of the industrial design process. Special emphasis is placed on the interdependency of materials: polymers, metals, wood, glass, ceramics; production methods: milling, forming, joining or growth and their applications: understood as the final form of a product as well. ID Tech teaches the design process through a series of hands-on problem-solving exercises, where students learn to create products of value that serve the needs of the end-user, client, and manufacturer, while recognizing and embracing the consequences and effects of their design solutions on society and the environment.
