About this Unit
The Industrial Design Honours Program provides students with an opportunity to apply their industrial design skills to an in-depth yearlong design research project that responds to an in-depth investigation to a particular design context. In Industrial Design Major Project (Commencement), Honours candidates develop a research plan and methodology that yield design opportunities for conceptual development and resolution (to be carried out in Industrial Design Major Project Completion). In this unit, candidates produce a comprehensive research design (and seek ethics approval as needed), literature review, preliminary concept explorations and a detailed industrial design brief.
