This studio offers a context for students to apply design, technical and creative methods to the production of high-quality group work, with a strong focus on the development of high-impact portfolios. The studio allows students to apply methods and principles of human-centred design in the context of new product development, and to engage with new technologies for interactive product design. Assignments will take the form of flexible group projects, allowing students to develop proficiency in design and prototyping skills to a wide array of design problems that they may encounter in various industries. The unit will provide students with the skills to investigate and integrate advanced technologies into the design of objects with embedded information content and interactivity.
