Why study Design and Manufacture?

Design and Manufacture creates opportunities for learners to develop practical/design skills, as well as gaining knowledge and understanding of design, materials and manufacturing processes.

The Course is practical, exploratory and experiential in nature. It combines elements of creativity and designing for aesthetic or visual impact with a requirement to consider a product’s function and performance. It helps the learner appreciate the tensions that exist between factors such as aesthetics, function, economics and the environment.

The Course is of broad general benefit to all learners. It also provides a foundation for those considering further study, or a career, in design, manufacturing, engineering, science, marketing, and related disciplines.
