Foundation Design courses in the Fine Arts program allow for the development of core design skills that include: observation, analysis, research, planning, design conceptualization, detail development and communication. Advanced courses enable students to further synthesize their skills while approaching a range of industrial design questions. Overall, our design studios aim to broaden the application of our creative skills to an expanded field by exploring the wider implications making has on the world around us. Through a sophisticated range of new digital competencies, new methods and materials, and new transferable skills, we investigate how what we think and what we make can drive positive change.
