3D Design Northumbria University

Accredited by: Northumbria University Newcastle

BA (Hons) 3D Design engenders a creative, analytical and skilful approach to the designing and making of products and furniture.

You will join a community of staff and students who share a firmly held conviction that an understanding of how to make something leads the designer to better understand the logic of use, the potential for beauty and the ability to place the activity of design in a broader cultural, environmental and economic context.

A creative studio culture and thoughtful workshop practice engenders an understanding that however ephemeral a trend or how immaterial a technology or intuitive an interface might be, manufactured ‘things’ play important roles as the props and backdrop to the theatre of everyday life.

The course vision is to create the most able graduates – primed to make significant contributions to their chosen field of professional design practice.
