Computer-aided industrial design (CAID) is a new and emerging application of computer graphics. Designers of such diverse items as cars, jewelry, furniture, luggage, and toys use computer graphics to design, visualize, and market their products. But are design schools preparing their graduating students for today’s design job market? Schools and industry can work together to incorporate computer graphics into design-school curricula. This paper will discuss the benefits of collaboration between design educators and the computer graphics industry and will describe the successful university program at Alias Research as a model of this type of collaboration.
