    Industrial design offers individuals with both aesthetic and technological interests a rewarding way to make our lives more sustaining, by creating objects of beauty and purpose.

    In this specialisation you will learn to apply your understanding of materials, manufacturing and people to develop products that improve society, enrich our culture and contribute to our economy – from furniture and smart phones, to domestic appliances and public transport.

    You will develop the practical knowledge and technical skills that industrial designers use on a daily basis, so you can confidently step straight from University into industry.

    With a specialist course at Monash you begin study in your area of interest from day one. If you have a specific career goal or more specific field of study firmly in your sights, this may be the option for you. These courses are designed to ensure you have the right combination of skills needed for your professional field.

    The course develops through theme studies in History and theory, Drawing foundation, and Design studios specific to each of the specialisations. These will come together in the form of a graduand exhibition normally developed during the final two studio units in the third year of the course.
