Industrial Design! That's what I want to get into in college, I'm a junior in HS in an engineering program and I would much rather move into industrial design than mechanical engineering. Do you consider industrial and product design to be the same thing? Some say it is but I think PD is much more art oriented.
Ahhh very nice, nice mix of premium materials!

Hmm, I'm not too sure how they structure it over in America. But here in Australia, Industrial Design is product design, and specifically with my course you can specialise in car design, general product design and furniture design. So yes, with my understanding I consider product and industrial design to be the same thing. Also, over here, you can do a double degree of engineering and industrial design, you may want to look into that to see if they offer that at the universities near you (if you also enjoy doing engineering).
Hope this answered your question :)
EDIT: it seems I'm not entirely correct, after some googling, it looks as if their is a difference, but it's not very clear cut as their is an overlap between the two. All I do know is that Industrial Design focusses on mass-produced products and has some engineering subjects within the course. Maybe contact the universities directly, and check them out during open weeks so you can see for yourself what the aims are of the course.
