Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00233E

In this degree, you will combine a creative engineering approach with industrial design innovation. You will graduate with a unique ability for innovation and creativity in Industrial Design whilst working within the principles of engineering. You will learn through project based design studios and technical learning studios and learning through making, as the degree takes a hands-on approach to teaching that uses advanced technologies such as 3D printing, whilst also experiencing traditional engineering learning to give you the chance to develop both your engineering knowledge and professional practice and your design skills and bring them together for project work wherever practical throughout the degree.You will learn about design process, material characteristics, mechanics and electronics as well as 3D computer modelling, creative thinking and digital media. This degree also incorporates an international focus on digital and advanced technology manufacturing, giving you the chance to develop an understanding of how a product is created, from design to delivery, in a global context now and in the emerging advanced manufacturing environment.
