Bachelor of Design (Honours) in Product Design
The Bachelor of Design (Honours) in 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.
The Honours program allows students to undertake self-determined, critical research and apply this to a specific project.
UTS believes a hands-on approach is fundamental for every aspiring designer. As such, the student's starting point is the individual design and making of an object. Throughout their studies students learn how to design, prototype and test design solutions, drawing on cutting-edge technologies and approaches, such as UX (user experience), wearables and electronics and gain hands-on experience 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.
