This programme aims to improve the effectiveness of designers within industry, and to enable both recent graduates and current practitioners to advance core design knowledge and specialist skills to a higher level.
It develops critical awareness of major issues in design practice, increasing students’ value to current and potential employers.
The programme also enhance students’ skills in producing a balanced portfolio of high-quality designs and innovative thinking, enabling them to deal with complex and inter-related issues both analytically and creatively.
The modules offered enable students to develop skills and competencies in the creative and / or analytical aspects of design whilst working with a diverse range of people.
It is the balance and focus of these skills and competencies that characterise the three named programmes which can be taken on a full-time or part-time basis.
On each route, students study five compulsory modules, two of which are route-specific. The three compulsory modules common to all programmes are:
Modules provided by the Department will be assessed by coursework only. Modules from other departments may be assessed by examination, coursework or a combination of both.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
A first or upper second class UK Honours degree in a relevant discipline, or the international equivalent of these UK qualifications. A lower level qualification with appropriate industrial experience may also be considered.
A design or engineering background is not essential, we encourage applicants from a wide range of disciplines who have an interest in innovative sustainable design and the desire to think differently about how to achieve it.
Acceptable English language qualification
No work experience is required.
