Bachelor of Design - Integrated Product Design

University of Technology Sydney (UTS)

The Bachelor of Design in Integrated Product Design prepares students for a career in the global product design industry, from boutique design practice or service design to large-scale industrial production and beyond. UTS believes a hands-on approach is fundamental for every aspiring designer. As such, the students' starting point is the individual design and making of an object. Throughout their studies students learn how to design, prototype and test solutions using the latest technologies in the faculty's digital and fabrication workshops. Alongside a strong technical base, the degree applies the creative problem-solving required to design experiences that make a difference to everyday life, whether in developing economies or digital cultures. Central to this approach is an understanding of the relationships between objects, culture, economy, technology, business and human behaviour.
