The purpose of this research is to determine the position of three-dimensional modeling and digital visualization within the scope of concept and product development process in the undergraduate education in Middle East Technical University Faculty of Architecture Department of Industrial Design, designate the problems that the students encounter during the integration of these methods to the design process, and finally question how these methods can be incorporated into design education in order to influence the design process positively. The timing, content and structure of visualization and modeling courses within the 4-year undergraduate design education and the relationship of the knowledge given in these courses with the design studio should be considered.
