Undergraduate

Description

This subject is an opportunity for students to work in inter-disciplinary teams on live briefs that range across design disciplines. The process enhances research and communication skills, as well as the ability to think critically about the consequences of what is designed. In particular, it allows students to learn in-depth about collaborative design and the potential of design to effect change in complex situations. Working with live briefs and real clients teaches better team and project management skills in situations where people depend upon professionalism. Working with colleagues from different design disciplines provides students with the opportunity to reflect on their own design processes.
