Finding a balance between beauty and practicality takes expert knowledge. That’s why this hands-on program gets you involved with the design of realistically detailed products suitable for manufacture with a focus on real-world industry engagement. Your degree will begin with introductory and shared impact lab units where, working with students from other disciplines, you’ll focus on problems and social issues, and identify potential solutions connected to industry and community. Your introductory studies include learning the creative design process, technical aspects of product design, design management and computer-aided industrial design (CAID) technology. You will progress to a deeper understanding of systems design including human factors and ergonomics, design research, coupled with innovation, aesthetics, marketing, cultural and social values, and design leadership. Later in your degree you will be able to transfer skills and knowledge to a workplace or professional context and gain practical work experience with work integrated learning.
