Design Innovation

The focus of this programme is ongoing development of design practice. It provides students with the opportunity to select an optional module from other institutes to inform their dissertation. Learning through doing is at the core of the experience and for designers on the programme this means taking part in a series of processes and projects that enables them to build a relevant portfolio of work. A main feature of the programme is a project with industry looking at studying a business or social problem and working collaboratively with others from other disciplines to deliver innovative design solutions.
