Third-year students taking Industrial Design at the Ontario College of Art & Design (OCAD) will start at shaping Canada’s wireless industry with a new design course, OCAD and Telus Communications Inc. announced today.

The OCAD/Telus Handset Project, part of the curriculum of OCAD’s Industrial Design program course entitled Emerging Technologies, will teach students how to design handsets for wireless phones that will meet the future needs of
Canadian mobile users.

A first for both OCAD and Telus, the collaboration will draw upon the students’ and the university’s design experience, while educating them about the intricacies of wireless device design.

The most innovative and functional design will be considered by Telus for further development and possible commercialization in the mass market.
