Why study with us?

Industrial design at the University of Newcastle 

Industrial design is a creative profession that turns bright ideas into reality - virtually every manufactured object in the world is the result of the work of an industrial designer.

The industrial design degree offered at the University of Newcastle will teach you to be a practical thinker with the ability to develop, evaluate and present innovative design concepts. With multi-dimensional skills, you will be able to link technology, management and marketing concepts and to participate professionally and effectively in design research.

If you have completed an industrial design advanced diploma through TAFE NSW or elsewhere, the Bachelor of Industrial Design provides a pathway for you to complete a university qualification.

Industrial Design student projects

Students create a 'Kickstarter' style video for their final year project, bucking the trend of the standard PowerPoint speech-style presentation.
