The course teaches super useful skills in how to operate as an industrial designer, and also provides tutors with Industry Experience. There are some opportunities to gain experience in the industry through the University via sister companies that will provide internships to promising students.
One of the negatives may be Industrial Design is very reliant on emerging technologies and materials which are hard to keep up with, especially within the tertiary system. Industrial design is also massively broad, so many areas of design are covered but detailed coverage is difficult.
My advice to future students is: Research the course and be committed to doing it as a career for a long time. Do not go to Uni just 'because'.
No negatives to mention, only positives which is the whole course, in particular the Professional lectures.
My advice to future students is: Just do it
Positives: very interesting
Negatives : only university in the state that offers the course, very disorganised, very stressful, lots of course work, very expensive
My advice to future students is: Make sure you only do this course if YOU are sure you want to use it when you graduate , consider studying at a different University
The course administrations are quite disorganised and put a lot of stress on students. But the overall content is challenging and interesting. There are also lots of job opportunities
My advice to future students is: Be prepared for a lot of work. You also need to buy equipment so need to save money. But you make life long friendships and you are making a difference so remember to enjoy it
I highly recommend this course if you're interested in different technologies and softwares and interested in design. The course covers a wide range of design from architecture through to furniture design through to interactive design.
Going from high school into uni, I highly recommend jumping on the website and finding the course outline for subjects, and start watching tutorials and getting yourself familiar with the interface of some of the programs you are going to use, especially with the programs Rhinoceros and Grasshopper. You're expected to know these programs really quickly and if you have a basic idea of what they are about it will definitively help!
I'm doing an Accounting major.
Positive: very good lecturers. The course includes intensive group work with real world case study. It's very practical and does not overwhelm students with overloaded information
Negative: too much group work often cause in free rider problem
My advice to future students is - Focus on developing better communication skills among group class mates.
Positive: We could make choices on the topics that we want to write about.
Negative: one of my course was an online course which i felt was not worth the cost i paid
My advice to future students - Make preparations before assignments are due and you will be fine!
Positives are its has high standard of entry unlike some others so cohort or peers are all quite good and experienced. The assignments relate to work place so good to showcase skills and negatives is the cost of the courses is extremely high
The job prospects are good if you want to progress into management in your own field or branch into consulting with companies like bcg - they even host employer sessions on campus
Well diversified course.
The course introduces financial modelling and forecasting projections, which are important for this field of career.
I couldn't recommend this course enough!!
positive: well rounded (clinical and research experience), range of topics is good
negative: faculty is not always transparent. too much competitiveness, excess emphasis on written exams
The course is ok. I'm neutral about whether I'd recommend it
