Along with the generalization of computer use and development on the Internet today, the boundary between on-line and off-line has collapsed. With this trend, diverse kinds of Web-3D authoring tools have been developed and distributed in the area of virtual reality. In particular, the authoring tools for applying 3D modeling and the Plug-in method have been developed and a new design field that is combined with IT(Information Technology) has been tried centering on multimedia. However, mainstream education in this field, so far, has been developed centering on IT specialists rather than on education that focuses on designers. With this background, this study aims to present a road map for fostering industrial designers who are suitable for the knowledge-creative society of the 21st century by developing Web-3D education models through combining industrial design curriculum with the technology of virtual reality that has become popular these days. The Web-3D education model as a characterization strategy for IT in the industrial design field not only creates another state-of-the-art occupation group for those who major in design, but also presents an important turning point for the development and application of the processes in the traditional industrial design field.
