Course summary

This programme allows students to engage with the craft of user-led and co-created innovation in design practice across a variety of fields and in widely differentiated social, economic, technological and industrial contexts. The course aims to respond to the changed context of design practice in the 21st century, where the discipline-based skills of the product designer, ceramicist, visual communicator or textile designer sit alongside the working practices and expertise of a professionally-diverse and often globally-dispersed workforce. The programme is aimed at postgraduate students who wish to expand and develop their creative practice through an exploration of user-led, collaborative and research-focused techniques of design innovation; it encourages students to identify historically novel or nascent areas in which the complexity of contemporary life threatens to overwhelm any existing solutions, systems, services or design responses and to pioneer collaborative and user-led solutions for these through the deployment of design innovation strategies and creative thinking.

Assessment method

Assessment throughout the programme is by a combination of individual essay or group project, written and oral examination.

Entry requirements

Good degree in a relevant area plus, normally a portfolio of work.
