The MDes program at UAlberta focuses on research for the public good in the areas of Industrial Design (ID) and Visual Communication Design (VCD). Faculty members are engaged in research and practice, using interdisciplinary approaches and participatory methods. Industrial Design is concerned with the interface between the user and the built environment and the physical, cognitive and emotional issues involved. Visual Communication Design focuses on information design and communication, in print and interactive new media, and includes design for needs relating to education, culture, health and safety. Graduate students have presented their work at local, national and international conferences and exhibitions.
