Course content

This course offers module content that is both compelling and unique, offering a combination of topics that are ahead of published conventional wisdom. In particular the teaching of forms of ‘product evolution’ and ‘design processes’ that challenge perceptions grounded in undergraduate experience, with justified approaches through the evidence of case studies of industry collaborations in which the models and theories have been the basis of commercial success in its delivery.

You will have the opportunity to work with a range of like-minded people all striving for the highest quality of creativity. This level of collaboration means you can maintain your specialist interest whilst working across two forms of theory and practice.

This ambitious combination of the polemical and the commercial reflects the approach of leading design practitioners, internationally the intention is to join with them in creating the conventions of the future rather than follow those of the past. The Masters programme will play a central role in establishing your reputation as an emerging designer in the twenty-first century.
