Different approaches and methods for the same degree bring complexity in education system. The aim of the study is to discuss about this diversity and to perform a circumstantial analysis of industrial design education in Turkey. The findings from the comparisons of the undergraduate education programs will help us to make predictions about the future trends and prospects in industrial design education. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
