Program Learning Outcomes: Bachelor of Industrial Design (Honours)
The program has been designed to prepare you to work in global contexts, to pursue further study and research, and to make strategic and professionally informed decisions about your practice in industrial design.
On completion of this program of study you will be able to:
- Apply analytical, critical, creative and strategic thinking to industrial design problems and research within complex and unfamiliar contexts and concerns
- Collaborate with other specialists and key stakeholders on design problems on multi-disciplinary projects in diverse settings
- Articulate complex design ideas to diverse audiences through an advanced and adaptable repertoire of communication strategies and technologies
- Generate innovative approaches to design problems and solutions, with a criticality and openness to the perspectives and needs of others in a situation
- Advocate through design practice the improvement of the conditions and wellbeing of people, cultural practices and environments
- Initiate, plan, manage and execute research and design projects with independence and in an objective and ethical manner
- Reflect on own learning and the efficacy of design decisions made, adapting to needs and issues as they arise, and continuously seeking improvement
- Demonstrate through practice-based design research an advanced knowledge of the socio-technical, environmental and economic eco-systems of industrial design both locally and globally
