Polytechnics that Offer ND/HND Art and Industrial Design with their Entry Requirements

The Industrial Design Department was established in 1981 and has three sections namely; Fashion Design, Textile Design, and Ceramics. The Department was created with the primary aim of satisfying and meeting the varied demands of individuals and the industries for design and designers. 

The fashion design subjects were introduced in 1965 by the late Eve de Negri. The programme started as a three-year certificate course but was eventually phased out. The ND programme in Fashion Design started in the 1980/81 session and the HND Fashion Design started in 1982/83 session. 

The fashion section also ran a day release course in Dressmaking for persons involved in the garment and related industries, which has since become a full certificate course in Dressmaking. The section has seven lecturers and one nonacademic staff. The Textile section was established in 1976 to prepare students for the award of HND in Textile Design.
