About the Course
The Diploma in Industrial Design programme aims to develop students to design and create lifestyle products that are appealing and user-friendly. Whether working on home appliances & housewares, furniture, personal mobile devices or transport systems, students use their understanding of technologies, materials, manufacturing techniques and user behaviours to improve a product’s design and usability.
The programme’s studio-centric curriculum involves research, designing, computer-aided modelling, making and testing of prototypes. Students will learn entrepreneurship through action as opportunities are provided for them to test-sell their creative works on a Kickstarter platform. They will also learn about Service Experience Design to improve services and customer experience which are vital to the service, hospitality, healthcare and finance industries.
