Details

Industrial design is an unmarked, but vital, part of modern-day living for virtually every human being. Every day of our lives we encounter products designed and manufactured with the intention of making our lives easier. It is industrial designers – incorporating a lateral and cross-disciplinary approach to problem-solving – who create the most useful products. 

The primary focus of the Western Sydney University's Industrial Design degree is ensuring its graduates are completely industry-ready, able to think strategically and provide innovative design solutions in a commercial context. In fact, for every Industrial Design student, the final year of the program is dedicated to the management of a single, major design project. The year-long design project culminates in WideVision, a unique exhibition and showcase of students' projects and skills.

Because of its real-world approach to design, this degree gives you the knowledge, skills and adaptability to respond to the challenges and complexity of today's industrial design market. It promotes an awareness of the place of design in society and its effect on people, the environment and the economy, and provides students with the ability to work alone or collaboratively.

Practical Experience

A 10-week session of industrial work-experience is required during/after the third year.
