This coursework Masters is for postgraduate students and industry practitioners with an undergraduate qualification in the same or related discipline area, such as Design or Creative Industries. The course provides students with insights on the new and sophisticated roles of design in the society, while learning about trans-disciplinary design strategies. In the latter stages of the course, students will focus on an advanced design application through the production of a major piece of sustained work that will fuse contemporary studio-based practice and theory with rigorous critical analysis. Students will be introduced to design thinking and strategic design to explore ways of investigating and understanding complex challenges, and user-focused methods of generating ideas. Students will be encouraged to view the design process as a collaborative activity that generates innovation through making and prototyping. The course will appeal to experienced designers who wish to invest in their specific practice to upgrade their practical design skills or improve their grasp of design theory, and to recent graduates who wish to extend their knowledge, skills and abilities in specialised areas.
