Course overview

Sustainable Design and Innovation aims to produce graduates who look to the future of design and explore how products, materials and services can be taken from creation to disposal with minimal impact on the environment. The pathway provides a good grounding in creative sustainable design methodology, its principles and how they are applied in practice.

You can become part of a brave new exciting world of design, where there is an onus on innovation, including the exploration of cutting-edge materials/manufacturing processes, which are allowing design to forge ahead in so many new directions; how are they being used and what impact will their use have on future design initiatives? Armed with this information you will as a designer will be able to make informed, ethical design decisions and creatively produce products/materials/systems which have a conscience.
