The Design and Technology degree provides a sound knowledge in a broad range of work-ready design skills, including thinking methods, drawing skills for creativity, design innovation, product design, human factors, design management, and 2D and 3D CAD.
This course can lead to multiple career outcomes, including product design, packaging, 3D modelling, rapid prototyping with 3D printing, design for sustainability, new product-oriented Start-Up, or secondary school teaching (with additional qualifications). Specialisation study includes Design Practice, Graphic Design, Cultural Studies, UX, Manufacturing, and Sustainable Futures. Students wishing to become industrial designers can articulate in the fourth year of the Bachelor of Industrial Design.
Products can engage our senses to evoke an emotional response or mediate an experience. Students learn how the design interface affects a user at a psychological level and how this understanding can provide a strategic opportunity for innovation.
