NASAD Accreditation

Iowa State’s undergraduate Bachelor of Industrial Design (BID) and Master of Industrial Design (MID) degree programs are both accredited by National Association of Schools of Art & Design (NASAD). NASAD is the organization of schools, conservatories, colleges, and universities with approximately 363 accredited institutional members. It establishes national standards for undergraduate and graduate degrees and other credentials for design disciplines, including industrial design.
