Abstract. Introduction. Taking into account the relevance of the development of modern design education in Ukraine, especially important are questions that highlight the systematic, methodical foundations of teaching art education, which allow us to remember the best traditions of old schools, highlight new directions and identify the most effective methods of improving the curriculum.

Problem Statement. With the development of industrial production in Ukraine in the 19th century, design began to take shape as an independent type of professional activity. Therefore, the study of the problem of the emergence of pan-European trends in the development of design and its formation in the western Ukrainian lands in the 19th and early 20th centuries are relevant today, as the practical aspect is related to the need to raise the professional level of design specialists in higher education institutions.

The purpose is to determine the main stages of development and formation of design in art and industrial education in Western Ukraine.

Methods. Methods of analysis, synthesis, comparison, description and generalization were used to reveal the goal. The combination of these methods made it possible to highlight the peculiarities of the formation of design in the art and industrial education of Western Ukraine.

The results. The peculiarities of the formation and development of design in the art and industrial education of Western Ukraine at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century are highlighted. It was established that in the western Ukrainian lands artistic and industrial education was carried out according to general European cultural trends. The development of design education as the legal successor of the artistic and industrial education of Galicia is considered. The significant influence of the Lviv Art and Industry School on the art and industry education of Galicia was noted. The prerequisites for the formation of design education in the artistic and industrial education of Bukovyna and the main stages of its development have been clarified. The peculiarities of the formation of artistic and industrial education in Transcarpathia are revealed.

Conclusions. Based on the results of the research, we note that the foundations of professional education laid by our predecessors in the 19th century provided favorable conditions for the further development of the design school in Western Ukraine.

Keywords: design education, design activity, artistic and industrial education, Western Ukraine, Galicia, Bukovyna, Transcarpathia.
