Computational Prototyping for Industrial Design

Computational prototyping for industrial design provides a practical and theoretical immersion into the technical field of creating custom software to manipulate and control various forms of digital media. Industrial design practice increasingly engages in the integration of software in the products they design and the process by which they undertake design and research. Fields of

Electronic and Interactive Prototyping

This course provides a technical exposure to methods of developing, programming and testing Electronic and Interactive prototypes. This form of prototyping is increasingly useful in understanding how environmental and user data might effect the functionality and affect of a complex product. The rapid shift toward that ubiquitous computing systems and data feeds means that many

Systems and Service Visualisation for Industrial Design

This course gives you an introduction to specialist visualisation techniques and adaptation of existing ones to communicate the design of complex services and systems. You will deploy a user-centred approach to visualisation as a core capability for industrial design to ensure that a system or service under design is targeted to specific audiences and strategically

Prototyping and Complex Fabrication

Industrial Design Prototyping and Complex Fabrication engages you in a technical prototyping environment to translate designed products into production ready prototypes for exhibition, presentation and for accurately communicating design intent, usability, materiality and mechanical performance to manufacturers, and product engineers.

You will engage in a wide array of prototyping tools, machines and techniques and undertake a

Advanced Industrial Design Visualisation

Advanced Industrial Design Visualisation provides specific technical and methodological development in advanced levels of industrial design drawing, graphic composition, in-situ and explanatory rendering, contextual and instructional illustration, diagramming and scenario visualisation.

You will extend a growing repertoire of drawing techniques and translate those skills into emerging digital drawing environments.

An emphasis is placed on how to think
