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.
This integrated approach to education prepares graduates to work in related professions both locally and internationally. Alongside the core subjects, students can take electives that help develop a specialisation, such as marketing, graphics, designer-makers, 3D printing and construction robotics, exhibition design, web design or service design.
Students can also pursue further study in specialised fields like vehicle design and clinical design.
Students learn in a multidisciplinary, team-based environment with 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 to managing production, distribution and the marketing of new products.
Finally, the degree prepares graduates for further study in specialised fields such as transport design or associated professional disciplines.
