Value Colleges Releases Top 50 Best Value Bachelor's in Industrial Design Degrees, 2017
Tuesday, June 06, 2017

CHARLOTTE, N.C., June 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Value Colleges (, an independent online guide to the best values in undergraduate and graduate education, is pleased to share their Top 50 Best Value Bachelor's in Industrial Design Degrees, 2017 at

Industrial and Product Design is one of the most exciting and stimulating occupations for creative professionals today, combining art, technology, engineering, and marketing in a dynamic, perpetually growing field. Modern design is highly human-centered, focused on usability, attractiveness, and distinctiveness. To meet the unique requirements of industrial and product design, colleges and universities have had to work hard to develop cutting-edge, interdisciplinary programs that draw on every aspect of the process, from imagination to manufacturing. With degrees from sources as different as art and design schools, engineering schools, and business marketing programs, Value Colleges has brought some clarity to the field by putting together a comprehensive ranking of the very best values in Industrial and Product Design.

Value Colleges uses three data points to determine ranking: reputation according to U.S. News & World Report's overall score; prospective salary according to data from College Scorecard Alumni; and cost according to non-resident tuition rate.

The three Best Values for 2017 are: 1) Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah; 2) James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia; 3) San Jose State University in San Jose, California. Value Colleges congratulates the top three, as well as all the schools in this ranking!

As site editor Carrie Sealey-Morris explains, "We tend to see the sciences and the arts as separate worlds; some people are good at science and math, and some people are good at art, and there is no overlap," but Industrial and Product Design shines a light on that misconception. "For modern design," Sealey-Morris continues, "imagination and creativity must come together with technical acumen; art and engineering work hand in hand to create products that grab attention, prove themselves useful, and even make their users love them." Product and industrial design is an important occupation that gets very little attention, either from consumers, or from high school guidance counselors and college advisors who help students make career decisions.
