Diablo Valley College’s (DVC) industrial design program addresses the workforce needs of the design and manufacturing sector with the design for manufacturing(D4m) certificate of achievement. The program courses provide current digital fabrication skills, while providing a foundation of traditional manufacturing.Students will also learn the design process and rapid prototyping techniques required by the field of industrial design as well as business marketing skills.
Graduates of the design for manufacturing (D4m) program may be employed in jobs that include production occupations, engineering occupations, assemblers and fabricators, engineering technicians, computer controlled machine operators, rapid prototyping for product design, and within research and development (R&D) fields. Students will gain the skills necessary to create 3D CAD models, program computer numerical control (CNC) manufacturing equipment,and operate traditional machinery such as lathes, mills, drill presses and precision measuring devices. Students completing this program will also be candidates for a broad range of manufacturing and corporate jobs requiring a combination of technical knowledge and the skills needed to collaborate between marketing, design, engineering, and manufacturing.
The design for manufacturing (D4m) certificate of achievement program shares coursework with both the machining and mechanical engineering technology and industrial design certificate programs. To earn the certificate of achievement, students must complete each of the courses required for the major with a “C” grade or higher.
Program Learning Outcomes:
Students will be able to:
1. analyze markets, marketing strategy, the marketing environment, and the marketing mix variables of product, price, promotion, and distribution.
2. work within a team of diverse industry professionals to establish and meet design criteria.
3. develop detailed technical drawings of a product.
4. determine the most efficient and responsible manufacturing method for products.
5. manufacture an object from a given drawing using machine tools.
6. prototype an object from a given technical drawing or three-dimensional CAD model.
7. design and prototype mechanical parts under the supervision of engineers.
8. use computer integrated manufacturing (CIM) and computer numerical control (CNC) software for automation of manufacturing.

Program Goal: Occupational Skill Development
Diablo Valley College’s (DVC) Industrial Design and Engineering Technology programs are seeking to meet the job needs of the growing high-tech manufacturing sector by offering students and our industry partners a design for manufacturing (D4m) certificate of achievement. This D4m certificate combines existing advanced manufacturing courses with DVC’s established industrial design discipline. The combined design and advanced manufacturing curricula has been aligned to provide the latest digital fabrication and CNC machining skills, while also teaching design methodology and rapid prototyping techniques inherent to the field of industrial design. In addition to select courses from DVC’s industrial design and machining for mechanical engineering technology, a business marketing course is included within the D4m certificate of achievement. No new courses will be developed.
