The Bachelor of Industrial Design (Honours) program at Western Sydney University prepares you for the profession with a new culture of learning supported by user/student-centered approach, competency learning, design studio-project based learning, applied design research and innovation. With a shorter time span between thinking and making, our graduates in industrial design create and innovate by value adding, better experiences and interaction, products, businesses and systems.

As a result our graduates are thinker-makers and design entrepreneurs, self-starters and all-rounders that can figure out and problem-solve ambiguity, work independently or in collaboration with others in new product development teams, user experience and interaction, product service systems, production and manufacturing. 

The course culminates in a final year industrial design project intending to develop visionary work leading to industry placement, Masters or PhD research place of design in society and its effect on people, the environment and the economy, and provides you with the ability to work alone or collaboratively.
