Thinking about a career in design?

If you’re looking for a way to channel your creative energy and ideas into a career, our School of Design can help you succeed. Our programs have a strong focus on hands-on, studio-based learning with our cutting-edge equipment and facilities. Through our extensive work-integrated learning opportunities, innovative applied research projects, and our industry-proven faculty, we’ll help you refine your talents and develop the people and technical skills you need to build your portfolio and network.

Connected to industry

We have over 500 industry partners and have established relationships with leading companies including Rogers Media, Ubisoft, Helios Design Labs, HM&E Design Comms., Corus, Kerr Smith, Uken Games, glu, and Game Loft among others. These partnerships inform our programming making sure our students consistently meet the evolving needs of the design world. In addition, they often provide field education opportunities where students get to learn and work alongside some of the best in their industry.

We’re home to the Institute without Boundaries, a think tank committed to collaborative and interdisciplinary design practice. And with Digifest, Toronto’s annual tech and innovation festival, students gain exposure to the industry’s leading thinkers and influencers.
