Industrial design is a multi-disciplinary field of study, which has a goal to create and object production. This can be done in combination with engineering and art fields. Industrial design study field aims to develop concepts and specifications of products and systems, optimize functionality, to improve appearance, which provide value and other benefits for users and manufacturers. Industrial designers must not only look into product functionality and appearance, but also they have to ensure user attractiveness and satisfaction of the product.
The Building Information Management (BIM) philosophy reflects not just the changing nature of project delivery, which is increasingly digital, multi-disciplinary and integrated, but also the demand from governments and clients for greater efficiencies on construction projects. These efficiencies can be gained from more accurate prototyping, simulation, costing, planning, design, production and operation, and will be an output of sound information management and data input to BIM software.
This Housing Practice MA course allows you to fulfil the professional requirements for membership of the Chartered Institute of Housing. The Housing Practice programme is a professionally-oriented programme that examines both theoretical and practical issues relevant to housing policy.
This MSc course builds on your diploma studies and provides you with the opportunity to carry out an investigation into an aspect of systems thinking that is of personal or professional interest to you or conduct a more academic in-depth research project. Both routes will enable you to extend your knowledge of recent research in your chosen area and become competent in relevant research methods. It will also develop your capability to plan, organise and carry out an extended independent study at masters level.
The distance learning programme Master Architectural Lighting and Design Management will be offered by the University Wismar - University of Applied Sciences: Technology, Business and Design. The aim of the long distance course is to comprehensively train lighting designers. The highly regarded qualifications and skills gained through this degree, offer graduates the opportunity to work in many relating fields. The central capability of a lighting designer, regardless of dealing with daylight or artificial light, is to design the interactions between architecture and light.
Students may specialize in Engineering Product Design, Systems Design and Data-Driven Design. Engineering Product Design addresses the identification of consumer preferences and requirements, the evaluation of existing products and product families, and the development of innovative designs. Systems Design examines the role components play within systems and the optimization of systems as a whole. This includes defining and developing a variety of systems that satisfy user requirements. Data-Driven Design focuses on using data to motivate and inform design decisions and assess current product performance.
The School of Architecture and Built Environment has developed an innovative approach to architectural education. From the beginning of the program, students work on projects that reflect real design problems met by architects in practice and use them to develop the knowledge and competence required of a graduate entering the profession.
The Professional Graduate Certificate in Systems Engineering program offers valuable resources for any engineer responsible for the oversight, creation, or operation of a complex system.
