This ground-breaking degree will give you a chance to redirect, challenge and rethink traditional processes and procedures in the design industry.
It will prepare you for a career as a commercial designer, innovator and design leader. You will learn from a combination of practical training and theory, and create designs that take into account social and environmental concerns and are up to date with the latest design practices.
In your first year, you will do core subjects and develop your design skills. This will give you a chance to experience different aspects of design, so that from your second year you can choose a major that suits you. You can also choose electives from other schools, subject to approval by the program convenor.
