The course provides stimulating and challenging practice based design education within a multidisciplinary studio environment with making and prototyping at the core of what it does.
Within the Furniture strand of the course the emphasis is towards Design rather than Craft, making is still seen as very important with model making and materials testing a key part of design development. Workshops offer facilities for the manipulation of soft materials for model making as well as wood, metal and plastics for prototyping.
Practice is informed and underpinned by a strong culture of contextual understanding and critical reflection. Students engage in multidisciplinary work based learning through collaborative projects and industrial placements underpinned by teaching in professional practice, strategic business thinking and entrepreneurship.
The Goal is to produce design graduates who are informed thinkers, fluent communicators and highly skilled makers that have the requisite technical, intellectual, creative and entrepreneurial skill sets to make a meaningful contribution within the context of the creative industries.
