Shih Chien University

Shih Chien University
TAIPIE, Taiwan

The Department of Industrial Design was founded in 1992; under the trend and demands of the industry, the Master Program and the On-job Training Program of the graduate institute were founded respectively in 1998 and 1999. The goals for the under-graduate program are "Professionalism, Internationalization, and Industrialization," whereas "the combination of theories and practices and the interdisciplinary studies across all fields" are set for the graduate programs. The curricula designs are both concentrated on the learning and accumulation of design-related knowledge and the creativity generated through first-hand experiments and practices; other than those, the comprehensions, reflections, and judgments derived from discussions on humanity, society, and technology will also foster students' ability in understanding the fact that industrial design in itself is a two-fold activity with multi-layers inner framework and multi-facets outward appeals. It is under these conditions that each and every student will be able to develop his/her unique approach toward rationales, methods, and ability in the process of designing.
