The department shares space with the Department of Architecture in the Architecture Building and the new Technology and Learning Complex designed by internationally recognized architect, Charles Gwathmy.
The focus of the Department of Art and Design is on preparing people for careers in Gaming, Graphic Design, Industrial Design, Interior Design, and Transportation Design. The Department values creative problem solving and provides opportunity throughout the curriculum for collaboration within the discipline as well as with other disciplines.
