Prospective Students

Choosing the right college is an important decision.

And the College of Design might be the right fit for you. We’re looking for a diverse group of creative and innovative students. Students who are smart, curious, and think outside the box. Who are hungry to learn and eager to share. Who come from across the United States and beyond to enter the College of Design for the opportunity to collaborate with multiple design disciplines and to learn under our impressive and some of the most talented faculty in the industry. 

We want students who want their minds to be stretched and their creativity to be pushed.

Great design is needed and companies are willing to pay for it. Companies around the world are recognizing that design is a bottom-line investment and not just an add-on. Our students have worked for and transformed some of today’s biggest brands including BMW, Ford, Alexander McQueen, Michael Kors, Nike, North Face, IDEO, and Frye boots.

Design your life. We'll help you build your dream.

If this sounds like you, we ask you to take the next step by coming to visit us. Talk to other students. Chat with professors. Check out the studios. Walk around the impressive NC State University campus.
