Diploma in Integrated Design Fleming College



What will I learn?

Fleming College’s new Integrated Design program will give you the fundamental design skills and critical thinking needed to become a successful designer in any discipline you choose to pursue.

This is the only program in Ontario that combines design principles, theory, history and process/methodologies with intensive studio time spent experimenting with different materials and methodologies.

Program Highlights

In this program you will earn an Ontario College diploma and a certificate while discovering what kind of designer you are meant to be. Our accelerated program is equivalent to two years of study at other colleges.

In this innovative and intensive three-semester program you will be introduced to the world of design and design thinking through a series of inspirational lectures, collaborative exercises, problem-solving assignments and hands-on material research. The program is structured around five actions: Dream, Communicate, Collaborate, Experiment and Apply – five design principles that form the foundation for a career in any design discipline

Throughout the program you will be exposed to a broad range of material practices and design categories including communication/graphic; fashion and textile; exhibition and environmental graphic; interiors; architecture; and landscape architecture and public art.

Integrated Design Diploma program graduates will be critical thinkers and problem solvers with the ability to fully engage in an art practice, supported by design thinking. While further education will be needed to advance in a chosen design discipline, graduates will have developed hands-on material experience, their own design voice and a unique skill set that they can parlay into a small independent practice/business.
