What will I learn?
The Bachelor of Design 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 combined Bachelor of Design in Product Design Bachelor of Arts in International Studies provides students with additional practical skills, in particular those that raise their awareness of the international contexts of design, by providing the opportunity to acquire knowledge and understanding of a language other than English and another culture.
UTS believe a hands-on approach is fundamental for every aspiring designer. As such, the students' starting point is the individual design and making of an object. Throughout their studies students learn how to design, prototype and test solutions using the latest technologies 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.
This integrated approach makes graduate is ready to work both locally and internationally. Students benefit from significant exposure to industry projects and global travel studios. Collaborations with local companies include Glarce Eyewear, Second Road, Kimberley Clarke, Cormack Packaging, Electrolux, Enware and King Furniture. UTS have established international connections with companies and institutions across Asia and Europe.
Students learn in a multidisciplinary, team-based environment thanks to the ability to work alongside other disciplines within the university and externally with industry partners.
Career opportunities for graduates of the Product Design degree are expanding. Longstanding industrial design roles include working as an in-house designer in a manufacturing company or working as a design consultant. Graduates also work in emerging fields such as service and strategic design or digital interaction design, adapting advanced technologies for new experiences and networked environments. Integrated education also allows graduates to move beyond design and manage production, distribution and marketing of new products. Finally, the degree prepares graduates for further study in specialised fields such as transport design or associated professional disciplines.
