Program description

Bachelor's in Design

This is a prestigious one-year program in design practice, theory and research for high achieving students who have completed a relevant undergraduate degree. You will undertake coursework, research and practical training and carry out an independent studio project in your selected specialist area of study, working closely with a supervisor who will provide you with individual guidance and academic counselling. The course will extend your professional expertise but also offers a pathway to higher level training in design research.

The collaborative design specialist area of study brings together design thinking, methods and experiences from a range of design discipline specialist areas of study. This Honours specialist area of study responds to the emerging need for designers with multidisciplinary skill sets that can apply design processes that engage spatial, communication, experiential and object-based solutions. You will be able to traverse a range of employment options, including; mediated experiences and spatial design practices; products and packaging; and the increasing range of intersected real and virtual service processes (such as designing for banking, airlines and other service delivery industries). You will develop advanced strategic and critical design thinking skills that respond to current user needs and industry challenges as well as the requisite research and academic acuity to pursue higher qualifications.

The communication design specialist area of study will prepare you for a design future in the areas of graphic design, visual communication and digital media. It will equip you with the ability to work collaboratively with interdisciplinary teams: marketers, service providers, clients and other designers; and apply advanced visual and experiential processes across a range of communication challenges. These include such areas as corporate identity, interactive environments, interaction designs, information designs, analogue and digital publishing, advertising, promotion, packaging, illustration, typography, way-finding systems, animation, and motion design. You will develop advanced strategic and critical design thinking skills that respond to current user needs and industry challenges as well as the requisite research and academic acuity to pursue higher qualifications.

The industrial design specialist area of study will prepare you for a design future in the fields of industrial and product design and other related areas of industry and commerce. Industrial design is concerned with the research and development of design in consumer and industrial products used by people. These range from industrial equipment to motor vehicles and from medical equipment to domestic appliances. You will acquire the skills to work as a part of a creative team involving engineering, production and marketing. You will develop advanced strategic and critical design thinking skills that respond to current user needs and industry challenges as well as the requisite research and academic acuity to pursue higher qualifications.

The spatial design specialist area of study will equip you with the industry-ready skills to create the spaces, lighting and objects that encourage people to engage and interact. You will acquire advanced design knowledge relevant to commercial and domestic interiors, entertainment venues, festivals, exhibitions or theatre sets. Spatial designers create experiences that communicate ideas, values and stories. You will develop the collaborative and design management skills that enable you to work with developers, builders and architects, across a wide range of projects that may include commercial, cultural, institutional, hospitality and domestic spaces. You will develop advanced strategic and critical design thinking skills that respond to current user needs and industry challenges as well as the requisite research and academic acuity to pursue higher qualifications.
