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:
* Design Research Methods
* Enterprise Business and Sustainability
* Sustainable Design
* Advanced Methods and Tools for Sustainable Design
* Cross-Disciplinary Group Project
* Design for Sustainable Behaviour
* Sustainable Design Major Project (Dissertation)
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.
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.
