The course provides a creative context for practice-based exploration and experimentation, through which students will be supported to develop innovative working methods and design solutions. Students will creatively exploit appropriate materials, technologies and techniques. As a discipline, design engages with the aesthetic, ethical and social dimensions of human life and the ecological, technological and industrial application of innovation. Within this context, students will be expected to undertake creative projects which are challenging and ambitious, and which result in credible, tangible design outcomes. The course is delivered through a series of project-based modules, through which students will engage with real-world problems and issues of relevance to contemporary design practice. Working individually and collaboratively, students will be encouraged to develop skills, knowledge and creativity commensurate with the needs of professional practice in design and the creative industries today.
