Industrial Design

198.124 Modelling and Prototyping for Product Design 15 credits
In this studio course students will investigate strategies and methods for exploring and modelling the form and function of tangible products. Through the development of skills, techniques and workflows, students will model and prototype three-dimensional design concepts and design resolutions.
198.157 Studio I (Object) 15 credits
In this studio course students will be introduced to creative and analytical thinking skills, idea generation and visualisation common to art and design practice. They will begin to acquire specific techniques, skills and processes in three dimensional form-giving, resourceful making and user experience. They will learn to discuss and evaluate their work and the work of their peers.
198.212 Product Design Visualisation 15 credits
Introduction to visualisation techniques and processes that are used for the design of tangible products that focus on developing drawing, rendering, concept development and presentation skills across a range of software and traditional media.
198.213 Furniture Design 15 credits
In this studio course students will develop skills in the design, development and production of furniture in one-off, batch or mass production. By gaining an understanding of the theoretical, historical and practical applications of the discipline, they will produce a project for a specific design context.
198.221 Modelling and Prototyping 15 credits
In this studio course students will explore issues and design considerations particular to modelling and prototyping for three-dimensional design. Through the application of skills and techniques, this course draws on a range of strategies and methods for exploring and representing the form and function of products.
198.257 Design Studio IIA (Industrial) 30 credits
In this studio course students will explore and articulate creative responses to design challenges through critical awareness of contextual issues. Students will develop and apply core techniques, skills and processes in industrial design.
198.258 Design Studio IIB (Industrial) 30 credits
In this studio course students will continue to explore and articulate creative responses to design challenges through critical inquiry into contemporary issues relevant to industrial design. Students will further develop and apply core design techniques, skills and processes.
198.308 Industrial Design Special Topic A 15 credits
The course focuses on one specific aspect of industrial design. Offerings change from year to year or may not be offered in a particular year.
198.315 Product Development 15 credits
In this studio course students will explore and articulate issues and design considerations particular to the development of products for manufacture. Through a design and build project, students will explore and apply their individual and collaborative practices required to develop a product from concept to manufacture.
198.320 Open Design & Digital Fabrication 15 credits
In this studio course students will utilise open design methodologies and digital fabrication tools to produce an open design project. They will explore the possibilities and articulate issues related to an open design philosophy whilst developing skills in making and digital fabrication.
198.357 Design Studio IIIA (Industrial) 30 credits
In this studio course students will establish a critical position through individual or collaborative creative exploration and articulation. With opportunities for varied contextual applications, students will consolidate and expand industrial design concepts, techniques, skills and processes in the production of their creative work.
198.358 Design Studio IIIB (Industrial) 30 credits
In this studio course students will negotiate a critical position through individual or collaborative professional practices, with opportunities to apply their specialist skills to a range of contexts. In addition to advancing industrial design concepts, techniques, skills and processes in the production of their creative work, students will develop and apply transferable skills relevant to professional environments.
