Qualifications

Overview

Industrial Product Design is one of three majors of the Bachelor of the Product Design degree combining creative innovation with technical and business skills.

Products such as mobile phones, mobility-assist devices, automatic espresso coffee machines, microwave ovens or bicycles all have elements in both design and usability. This major will teach you how to design products that solve problems, as well as create interest for consumers.

You will also develop skills in product design methods such as sketching and computer-aided design, fluid flow, power and energy, and materials selection that is ergonomic, functional, and appealing. You will gain a practical understanding of the product design lifecycle – from idea generation to prototyping and commercialisation.

Industrial designers are imaginative, have good artistic skills, innovative, able to work well under pressure, and be good communicators who are open to criticism. They are also persuasive at selling their ideas to clients.
