Industrial designers have the ability to affect change and create powerful solutions that improve both human and environmental health and wellbeing.
Exploring the trans-disciplinary nature of contemporary industrial design. You'll engage in practical learning through our practice-based design studios, co-creating solutions through a human-centred approach to product, service and experience design contexts.
For over 70 year’s industrial design at RMIT has offered aspiring designers ground breaking experiences through technical, theoretical and applied immersions into the diverse and dynamic fields of industrial design practice. Working on real-world problems in industry and community contexts, this hands on educational experience culminates in a year-long honours design research project. 
You will develop a design practice through:
  • the design of sustainable products, services and systems
  • design as a mechanism for enabling social reform and cultural enrichment
  • commercial and aesthetically-focused approaches to product, transportation and furniture design
  • technologically and materially mediated interactions and experiences
  • the possibilities of form, process and material in response to rapid technological advances
  • operating at the intersections of our digital and material worlds
  • using design as a conduit to address social sustainability, cultural awareness and the wellbeing of clients, users and communities
