Bachelor of Industrial Design (Honours)
Are you interested in industrial design? Would you like to create change? This discipline shapes the world we live in. Industrial designers have the ability to affect change and create powerful solutions that improve both human and environmental health and wellbeing.
Exploring the trans-disciplinary nature of contemporary industrial design. You’ll engage in practical learning through our practice-based design studios, co-creating solutions through a human centred approach to product, service and experience design contexts.
For over 70 year’s industrial design at RMIT has offered aspiring designers ground breaking experiences through technical, theoretical and applied immersions into the diverse and dynamic fields of industrial design practice. Working on real-world problems in industry and community contexts, this hands on educational experience culminates in a year-long honours design research project.
You will develop a design practice through:
the design of sustainable products, services and systems
design as a mechanism for enabling social reform and cultural enrichment
commercial and aesthetically-focused approaches to product, transportation and furniture design
technologically and materially mediated interactions and experiences
the possibilities of form, process and material in response to rapid technological advances
operating at the intersections of our digital and material worlds
using design as a conduit to address social sustainability, cultural awareness and the wellbeing of clients, users and communities
Centred around a design studio model, you are equipped with unique ways to explore ideas. You’ll also challenge conventional paradigms through engaging with local and international design practitioners and build industry networks throughout your studies. These life-changing educational experiences culminate in both social and entrepreneurial approaches to design. You’ll gain an adaptive knowledge of making, materials, process, technology, culture and the environment.
