Course Description

In this course, you will undertake a project to apply your knowledge and skill in your chosen area of specialisation. Projects are aligned to different design approaches, with an emphasis on collaboration and responsive design in relation to a brief posed by an external discipline, industry or community partner.   This course includes a work integrated learning experience in which your knowledge and skills will be applied and assessed in a simulated workplace context and where feedback from industry partners and/or community is integral to your experience.   In select semesters, this course is co-delivered with MANU2507 F+T Sustainable Innovation Partnered Project and GRAP2873 Textile Design Partnered Project.
