Acceptance Process, Dates of Exams, and Additional Details about Portfolios and the Declaration of Intent

Industrial Design

Stage 1: Review of Portfolios and Registration Documents

The first step in the acceptance process includes a review of the portfolio, resume, transcript, and declaration of intent of each of the candidates – not in their presence

The portfolio for all tracks* must reflect the professional experience of the candidate, as relates to his or her area of undergraduate study and professional work. The selection of works and the design of their presentation should emphasize the candidate’s most notable professional accomplishments, talents, experiences, and abilities

*The portfolios of candidates applying to the about design track should include work from the last five years. Organize your materials, and next to each work provide a written description of the work and the concept, photographs of the finished product (where “product” can refer to any medium or format). Include a visual description of the work process and thought process – sketches, development of the materials, inspirations or anything else that will help us experience the way in which you design and develop visual thought
If you have a website, please attach it as a link. This is only an addition; do not rely on the website for submission of the portfolio

*Regarding the portfolios of candidates applying to the design & technology track: This track is open to candidates from a wide range of areas and professional backgrounds. All candidates should have in common a probing curiosity, a sense of courage regarding innovation, and the joy of discovery – and these should find their expression in each candidate’s portfolio, which can include a range of products and processes. Your portfolio is an additional window into your personality and your work until this point, and it is not expected to consist exclusively of design products

Declaration of intent – Should be about 200–250 words maximum
The declaration of intent is a letter that describes your motivation in choosing the Master’s degree track. What are your personal aspirations within the framework of the program? Why did you choose this track? What do you want to accomplish through the studies? What areas have attracted and interested you in recent years?
