Am I in the wrong program? (IXD)

I just finished my first year of an Interaction Design graduate program. I'm currently hunting for summer internships, but as of now, I really have no idea of what IXD is like in industry, as far as what I'd actually be doing. My program is based out of an Industrial Design curriculum, but I'm hearing that as an IXD professional, I'm not going to be allowed to do any Industrial Design (physical products) type work. (FWIW, my undergrads are in computer technology and communication)

I definitely do NOT want to do web work. Am I in the wrong program?

I have been thinking about switching to Interaction design.... But I think I am confused as where to start?? Should I be going for a formal Masters Degree in Interaction Design/ HCI.. opt for Certifications or Online Courses ?

I wrote a review of the Nokia N9 (and related issues) for Domus - this is the long version for the website; shorter version in the magazine in January.

Interested in peoples' thoughts and reactions. It covers, er, a lot of ground.

capabilities of online industrial design courses

Hello. My background in design (outside of interaction issues) is kind of weak, so I'm interested in some continuing education. Specifically, I'd like some training in industrial design, and I've found a couple of graduate level programs (e.g., SCAD) that offer eLearning in that discipline. My question concerns the effectiveness of eLearning in this case.
