       1. Fourth-year students are required to register in IDES 4301, IDES 4302 and IDES 4310 in the same academic year.
       2. Although the Industrial Design Seminar IDES 4001 takes place in the winter term, the preparatory work that students are required to do must be completed in the fall term, and therefore requires registration in the course in that term.
       3. One successfully completed Industrial Design Co-op work term is equivalent to IDES 4400.
       4. The electives under Item 10 above must be chosen in consultation with the School on the following principles:
             1. the electives chosen should serve to deepen the student's understanding of fields related to Industrial Design or disciplines that are relevant for industrial designers;
             2. the electives chosen should preferably be related to the Industrial Design projects and provide basic and/or actual information for these projects.
