Bachelor of Industrial Design

Griffith University

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00233E

This program combines creative engineering approach with industrial design innovation. Students will graduate with a unique ability for innovation and creativity while working within the principles of engineering. Students will learn through project based design studios and technical learning studios as well as learning through making. The degree takes a hands-on approach to teaching that uses advanced technologies such as 3D printing, whilst also experiencing traditional engineering learning to give students the chance to develop both their engineering knowledge and professional practice and their design skills and bring them together for project work. Students will learn about design process, material characteristics, mechanics and electronics as well as 3D computer modelling, creative thinking and digital media. This degree also incorporates an international focus on digital and advanced technology manufacturing, giving students the chance to develop an understanding of how a product is created, from design to delivery, in a global context now and in the emerging advanced manufacturing environment. The program provides a pathway to accreditation into Engineers Australia on completion of an additional two years of study if students have completed an appropriate profile of elective courses as advised by the Program Director or entry into an honours or master's program.
