Art & Design

Design encompasses and touches virtually every aspect of our daily lives. As a designer, your creative decisions will determine the shape, look, feel and scope of the 'products' that people will buy and consume as part of their daily lives.

 

Our Design courses give you an opportunity to experience and develop the skills and processes involved in the professional practice of product design, industrial design, interior and spatial design, graphic design and illustration.

 

Our students have an excellent track-record in winning national prizes including the National Student Lighting Designer of the Year and first prizes in the Design and Art Direction (D&AD) Global Student Awards.
