The Bachelor of Design (Product Design) is the first step towards becoming an industrial designer. Industrial designers create the form and function of the thousands of products people use every day, including electronic devices, home appliances, workplace products, tools, sports equipment, fashion accessories, new car concepts, toy and game designs, furniture and medical equipment. To be a professional industrial designer, students are required to complete a three-year undergraduate degree and a Master of Design.
