  • Industrial Design is a highly visual and people-centred discipline that requires the creativity and vision to produce innovative product solutions to real problems. Understanding and working with people and driving innovation through this process are at the heart of much of the course. Developing knowledge and abilities in areas such as styling, manufacturing, business, sustainability, materials and technology are essential components of the course. Knowledge and skills are gained in sketching, CAD, rapid prototyping, product styling, brand awareness, user-led innovation, materials/processes, the development/ communication of ideas, ergonomics, sustainable design, techniques of planning, and the production of models, prototypes and finished artifacts.
