This course focuses on human centred design and addresses human need through innovative thinking and appropriate design solutions. You will gain insight into user requirements, economic, environmental and ethical considerations, as well as materials, manufacturing, production and industry capabilities which will help inform the design of your products. You will design a range of products for both commercial and domestic use, including furniture, interior products, consumer goods and sustainable products. Live industry briefs will ensure you will be working in real world contexts to design products that make a positive contribution to the world around us. **DESIGN STUDIOS** Our design studios provide you with a flexible working space, with computers integrated into the working environment. A textile space is also nestled next to a lecture area with digital projection equipment.
