For those of you who has previously asked me about the design courses in Nanyang poly, here are some of my honest opinions.

I came from Industrial design, more commonly known as Product Design, it's similar to Design & Technology that you have in Secondary School. It sounds more of a boy's course because there are a lot 3-dimensional visualizing and model making involved. Girls would probably worry about having their manicures scratched! As product designers have to work very closely with engineers, there are a lot of engineering based modules. Most of our lectures are also engineers and they like to give honest feedback in a direct manner.

Despite all the scary moments mentioned, I've never once regretted joining Industrial Design at NYP.
In the first two year of the course, there are modules like colour studies, advertising, typography, model making and perspective drawing. I've got the best of both worlds absorbing skills of Visual Communication as well as Industrial design. I was always very curious about how things are manufactured. The engineering videos that my lecturer showed us really blown me away. It explains how small items like coins to big machines like cars are manufactured. I was also thankful that my lecturers prepared me for the real design world out there. On my very first week of advertising job, I got screamed at by my boss in front of all my colleagues. I felt really upset at first, but I learnt to be stronger. I absolutely miss design school at NYP
