Bachelor of Design – Transdisciplinary
Transdisciplinary design is built with design thinking at its core. It encourages students to explore design skills beyond the boundaries of a discipline, offering them a deeper understanding and practice in a broad range of design topics and skills. Courses in materials, history, communication, culture and business management teach them how to apply creative thinking in a practical context across diverse disciplines. Students work collaboratively in workshops, studios and on projects to move beyond conceptualization and ideation to hands-on implementation and prototyping.
Bachelor of Design –Interaction
Interaction design focuses on users and their interaction with products and how the experience of using a product can be enhanced. This program focuses on designing and developing interactive digital products, environments, systems and services in response to our changing environment with a focus on studying user and product behaviour more than the form.
