Re-Engineering Engineering

Industrial design is a vital part of modern-day living. 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 our Industrial Design program is ensuring that our graduates are completely industry-ready, able to think strategically and provide innovative design solutions in a commercial context. The course 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 independently or collaboratively.

You will be required to undertake 10 weeks of industry placement, which encourages professional development and often leads to projects for the final year of the program and, in some instances, direct employment upon graduation. Additionally, our graduates are eligible for professional membership of the Design Institute of Australia – the professional body representing designers in Australia.

The annual School of Computing, Engineering and Mathematics Honours and Graduate Exhibition showcases the impressive projects our students have created.

“Studying Industrial Design at Western Sydney was my most enjoyable time at university. The variety of skills learnt in drawing communication, CAD, design and creativity are ones I use everyday in my work and personal life. As a high school teacher, these skills have led to consistently high HSC results, and selection of top projects for my students due directly to the refinement processes and expertise in design taught to me while doing I.D. My skill set is unique to other TAS teachers and has led me to be sought after for advice, training and professional development of others.”
