School of Design

KYUNGIL UNIVERSITY School of Design

The School of Design aims to educate our students to become innovative designers. Our students can choose to major in Industrial Design, Visual Communication Design, Fashion Design, or Living Design.

Overview

Industrial Design: Product Design Track

The Industrial Design program prepares students to lead the way in designing useful products for an increasingly complex society. Our program trains students to understand and employ advanced design tools, methods, and environments to improve the way we live, work, and play. Students will learn how to design and implement practical solutions to society’s most pressing challenges. We aim to cultivate creative designers who understand the entire design process, including production, sales, distribution, marketing, and management. The program actively encourages our students to collaborate with industry. We help them find design internships at companies, as well as participate in national and international design competitions and exhibitions.

Industrial Design: Visual Communication Design Track

Contemporary culture increasingly demands compelling visual communication. We now think in pictures and words. In the Visual Communication Design program, we train our students how to satisfy the information needs of clients and customers by visually communicating the human experience. Visual Communication Design has traditionally focused on graphic design, but its definition is expanding. Now, it involves motion graphics, animation, new media, service design, and design management. Our program offers hands-on courses in these areas to prepare our students for the future of visual communication design. Our program actively facilitates student collaboration with industry. We help our students find design internships at companies, as well as participate in national and international design competitions and exhibitions.

Fashion Design

Our Fashion Design education nurtures students to be creative. Students learn how to develop finished garments and merchandise products in this challenging fashion industry. We guide students to become professionals who are equipped with fashion design planning initiative and marketing skills. The global fashion industry is becoming more refined and specialized. Our program offers a systematic and distinguished curriculum with hands-on experience studio classes. This allows our students to keep up with the fast-changing field. Our program continues to build an academic-industry collaboration network in order to establish a relevant curriculum, industry competitiveness, as well as foster exports in the fashion design field.

Living Design

The Living Design program prepares its students to become future designers who will be able to enrich the quality of human life in the 21st century. Both digital and analogue world coexist in the current society, demanding multidisciplinary and innovative designers. In accordance with this societal need, this program helps students understand diverse culture, suggest a new trend, and advance their work together with design and art. This program, also, prepares its students for professional design positions through hands-on classes in a studio.
