Course content

This course explores new and emerging methods for rapid prototyping, digital crafts and the repatriation of manufacture.

You’ll use old and new technologies for the virtual and physical modelling and testing of design ideas. With highly creative projects you’ll employ design prototyping and fabrication methods for various scales of production, critically informed by design research methods.

You’ll have the opportunity to shape your own ideas, concepts and theories through a self-directed major project, informed by design research and critical enquiry.
