About this Unit
Collaboration is the foundation for some of the most successful world achievements ranging from medical breakthroughs, to space travel, to smart phones, to drones. Effective collaboration in diverse teams promotes a dynamic environment for creativity and innovation with good prospects for developing novel solutions. In a real world collaborative, co-design partnership with an external university partner, students will create a design proposal and prototype, based on a project brief. Through this collaborative process, students will develop skills in research, conceptualisation, communication and reflective practice whilst prototyping and testing their ideas before presenting them to their client.

Special Requirements - Essential Equipment
Online work safety module must have been completed prior to workshop space use. Specific requirements regarding machine use may require student safety inductions per apparatus i.e. drill, sander, laser cutter.
