Industrial design

Your qualification will be a Bachelor of Industrial Design

Industrial designers combine design, technology and production knowledge to develop consumer products, systems, services and experiences.

You’ll gain an understanding of materials, manufacturing and how people use products that improve society, enrich our culture and contribute to our economy – from furniture and smartphones, to domestic appliances and public transport. You’ll develop practical knowledge and technical skills required for a career as an industrial designer.

Year 1: In the Industrial Design studio, you’ll be introduced to the fundamental principles of understanding and controlling 3D form, and the relationship between producer and manufacturer. You’ll explore the basics of modelling and industry-standard software.

Year 2: You’ll examine user interface and discover how to improve your designs by considering how humans move and think. The entire second semester of second year is electives – you could also choose to use the time to undertake practical placement.

Year 3: Your final year focuses on the application of advanced problem design skills at a professional level. Explore manufacturing techniques and create a prototype of your design to present at the graduating exhibition, MADA Now.
