Overview

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 Bachelor of Design in Product Design degree at the University of Technology Sydney 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.

Course aims 

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.

Careers

Career options include design for all aspects of life, from the everyday to the critical, including commercial product, sports technology, health, future transport, packaging, exhibition design, service design and humanitarian work. Product designers can work for individual manufacturers or specialist design consultancies, or start their own enterprises.
