From Engineering To Design. Please Help Me!

Recommended Posts

HELLO

 

I have a bachelor's in mechanical engineering but I want a career in design because I want a career in creative and artistic field where I can use my creativity and imagination. Engineering study was fun but I don't like the job in factories and all plus I didn't graduate from a prestigious college.

 

Now I am interested in transportation design and industrial design but I have heard that jobs in transportation design are very less as compared to ID. So, I was thinking about a masters in industrial design.

 

Now comes the sketching part. I have attached some of my transportation design sketches as I haven't scanned my industrial design sketches yet. They would give you an idea of my sketching skills which are not too good to be honest but are okay I guess.

 

So, all I am worried is am I doing right thing to go for a master design course??? Yes, I have the creativity, skills required to become a designer but still I wonder If doing a master course would help me. I wonder what if don't get a job after that which is my biggest concern.

 

What do you guys think??? any guidance is appreciated.

 

Also, please tell me some good schools for masters in industrial design which are not too expensive as I highly doubt considering myself for a scholarship because my ID portfolio isn't that strong because of no past experience but I can learn and learn pretty fast.

your sketches are not bad at all. How passionate are you about industrial design? Do you very often like to create things? If you work very hard, then don't worry.

Yes, I do. I just think every moment I should have taken ID instead of engineering at undergraduate level. Whenever, I see new products or other things, I always think I could have made it better.

 

But the problem is what course to choose?? Is the masters course right for me?? as I have no background in ID.

I searched and found florence design academy, Is it a good school. It's fee is also moderate. They have a two year course in ID. It's not a masters course but a two year course so I think would be suitable for me. However, I dont know I am eligible. I have mailed them and awaiting response.

 

Please, tell me some good schools that would have a course suitable for me and fee should be relatively less compared to most US schools.

 

PLEASE HELP ME!!! I REALLY NEED GUIDANCE !!!

I think you should review the programs of different schools from countries where you would like to study. And then contact them to learn more about the courses.

Start with TU Delft from the Netherlands. They have a website with a lot info about their master programs of ID.

I am thinking about Florence Design Academy. Is it a good school???? It's fee is also less. It also has a one year program which I can take to lay down my foundations in ID and then I may do Masters from same or other institute IF NEEDED. or I could directly do a masters . Plus I love Italy.

 

 

TU Delft masters program is very nice indeed but the deadline of application has passed away month ago. I don't want to wait till next year. So, please tell me some other good options.
