Why Study Product Design with us?

The ethos of the Department is that the study of art and design is a culturally and economically significant endeavour that is intellectually challenging and emotionally rewarding.

The disciplines studied within the Department foster freedom of expression and the development of abstract concepts to material expressive form. We place importance on experimentation and generating creative, imaginative connections.

We have a playful approach to media, materials and processes. We have mutual respect for each other’s practice and foster a creative community within the department, faculty, University and city.

We aspire to be creative, innovative and professional in everything we do.
