As a pioneering course in the field, MA Industrial Design continues to reframe what industrial design is and means while honouring the traditional legacy of the subject.

You will question how, why and for whom particular goods and services are produced, and utilise industrial design to catalyse change and leverage insight to inform new practices, your discipline and the industry as a whole.

You will question the impacts of design practice and the role of the industrial designer by engaging in a broad range of problems and contexts.

We draw on current thinking and practice in other discipline areas, including the physical sciences, social, psychology, policy design, behavioural science and environmental studies.

You will continually reappraise the discipline, question and develop its relevance through critical and socially responsive approaches.

You will explore the application of industrial design in both market-led and societal contexts.

This constant review of what industrial design is creates a culture independent of a particular style or dogma. Instead, it encourages diverse engagement, reflection, negotiation and prototyping of the discipline.

MA Industrial Design will teach you to take on strategic sustainabilty-informed roles, identify and respond to trends, initiate design approaches and thrive in multidisciplinary teams.
