About the Course

Do you have a flair for design? Or have lots of ideas for new products or how to improve the user experience? Then our Diploma in Industrial Design programme aims to help you create trend-setting products and services to improve people’s lives.  

Industrial designers play a significant role in today’s innovation economy as technology and digital experiences become part of our lives. When conceptualising a new product or a service, you will get to use your understanding of technologies, materials, fabrication techniques and user behaviours to create the perfect solution. You’ll get to research, design, use computer-aided modelling, as well as make and test prototypes. You will also get to try your hand at entrepreneurship as we provide the opportunity for you to test-sell your creations on an online funding platform.

This diploma is for you if…

You wish to play a part in creating technological innovations that will impact future lifestyles and create new markets through consumer products and services.
