Industrial Design at Humber


Jacob Migneault: It’s taught me a lot about conceptualizing to manufacturing. And I find it’s one of the best colleges for
that. They’re really broad in what they teach and that’s what the industry looks for. Patrick Burke: There’s an emphasis in the program and there always has been in starting with a good foundation of skills and it starts with sketching, using various software to enhance that. The second is model-making. Making sketch models to express your ideas and to formulate where to go from
there and the third is 3D CAD or computer-aided design and we teach it not just as software,
we teach it as a tool for design. Bruce Thomson: We actually have a third-year work
placement. It’s a minimum of 400 hours of paid work in the field and it’s been
very successful for our students. It connects them with industry and that’s good but we
also have many sponsored projects in our studios so that industry is coming into the school. Natalia de Carvalho: On our last assignment, we worked with Bayer to design a point-of-purchase display, so we’re already getting out there and our assignments are based on the real-world. Alessandro Spassiani: Actually the students came for a walk-through of the factory. They wanted to experience what manufacturing is all about and then they asked if they could come in and use our shop a
little bit to see what can be done for their product. The design, the way they use
the material. I’m quite impressed, very impressed. Lee Renshaw: I’ve had two or three jobs
in the industry and in the meantime just on my own time, I developed my Rise and Hang travel system. In order to get our product to launch we went on
Dragon’s Den and we won, we got a deal and since we’ve been working with David Chilton and things have really skyrockets since that point. Humber really got me on
the right foot just by being able to present my ideas in a clear and understanding way. Jennie Cousins: The professors in our program are actually quite amazing so they’ve actually worked in the field and they have the hands-on experience
so they can actually come back and teach us. Reymin De Leon: So after graduation I will be joining General Motors in Michigan as an exterior design intern for the GMC brand. Kayt Lucas: We’re all kind of really good at
different things so it’s been really fun to kind of work with other people and bring those
skills together and try to put our projects together in that way using everybody’s best.
