Design Focused on Technology

Industrial design at Georgia Tech aims to fortify the designer’s role in humanizing connections between people and technology. Through purposeful integration of aesthetic, functional, utilitarian, economic, sustainable, social, and cognitive considerations, our curriculum prepares the new design generation with the tools to develop thoughtful solutions to the challenges of the 21st Century.

As part of a top-ranked research institute, our programs offer an evidence-based approach to design and valuable experiential learning opportunities. Through eleven research labs, fabrication and prototyping shops, design studios, and multidisciplinary collaborations, students gain exposure to practical skills valuable to many industries.

Industrial Design Student Wins People’s Choice Award at 2023 InVenture Prize Competition

Julia Piña's Novela Lamp won the People's Choice Award and $5,000 after a public vote during the Inventure Prize on Wednesday night, which aired on Georgia Public Broadcasting. Her lamp is an interactive shadow puppet lamp that allows children to tell stories using puppets and scenes. It promotes imaginative play and fosters communication skill development through creative expression. Piña's venture has already engaged the attention of toy retailers.

Piña hopes to bring the Novela Lamp to homes worldwide, providing a fun and unplugged activity for parents to spend quality time with their children while encouraging creativity and imagination in the next generation of inventors, storytellers, and designers.
