Hello i am going to be a senior this year and i am considering what major i should to do in college.
i want to do industrial design or architecture, but i don't know what to choose between those two major.
For Pratt Institute, which major should i choose? and
for SCAD, which major should i consider doing?
Also do you think it's possible to major in Architecture and do industrial design for minor?
Please Help Me!!
I don't think anyone is gonna be able to help you here; it's pretty much purely a matter of personal preference.
As for minoring, most likely you could take some industrial design classes during your elective slots, but won't be able to formally minor in it. Depends on the school, though.
Hiya, I went to SCAD for industrial design and knew some architect majors. I kind of lurk around here....
Anyways, my biased opinion is that SCAD's ID program is better than it's architect one.
I graduated in 2010 (um, last year! wow!). For both good and bad, the program has a very broad focus. So, you could create concentrations in interaction, service, marine, sustainable, or automobile design (i don't recommend the last one though---not the best school if you want to design cars), etc etc. Every quarter there are "sponsored studios", which means a course that is sponsored by a company (Dell, Freescale, Rubbermaid, Kids II, Vtech, etc have all sponsored studios). Its nice bc it gives you a peak at the real world, the potential to have a class project actually come to fruition, and industry contacts (not uncommon for top students to get internships with the company afterward). I can give you lots more details on the pros/cons if you really want to know.
So, some bad news. It would be very hard at SCAD (almost impossible) to major in architecture and minor in industrial design. Reason being, is that the architecture program is more strict. Students must take certain classes in particular quarters with less flexibility. Or at least that's how it was a few years ago. A friend of mine tried doing architecture as a major and ID as a minor, before just switching to ID completely.
I would say ID has more opportunities in design, and if you don't know for sure what you want to do, you will probably be exposed to more things in that program.
ONE LAST THING:
It's a blog & forum specifically for industrial designers, and you'll have a better response there. It's pretty big in the industry and would be somewhat of a CA equivalent.
