Industrial Design

The programme is about pushing the envelope of Industrial Design by educating the next generation of visionaries and implementers, who will embrace, reflect and address environmental, economic and social-cultural challenges through the medium of creative and technological dialogue.

An interdisciplinary approach will be adopted, allowing the students the freedom to challenge conventions through cross collaborative experimentation and lateral thinking, with a goal of harnessing design ambiguity into an entrepreneurial outcome. It is our intention to promote the growing reputation of the School by embedding a culture of design led research activity closely supported by local, national and international organisations.

The MSc Industrial Design programme aims to educate designers for professional practice with the modules in Part 1 focusing on design thinking and the development of the student's analytical and philosophical attributes, with Part 2 allowing the student freedom to deliver an in-depth investigation to a self-defined question.

It focuses on the advancement of innovative paradigms for sustainable product development through the use of digital technologies. It does this by allowing students to explore and test design solutions through prototyping within real and virtual environments. This programme is of particular benefit to those working as designers/engineers in a design and development environment. The programme places a strong emphasis on the integration of the latest time compression technologies to consider the sustainable development, realisation and production of products.

The programme has been designed as a platform to allow students to expand their professional stance and reconcile consumer desires and needs with manufacturing reality.
