Industrial design is an exciting and rapidly evolving profession. At AUT, a great product is defined as the end result of a design process that explores, challenges and responds creatively to an identified problem. Products can be tangible, three-dimensional manufactured objects like consumer products, furniture, packaging, medical and sports equipment or they can be product interfaces and product-related systems and services. Many products are solutions to real-world problems.

AUT industrial design graduates are award-winning and well-prepared for a changing future. Ethical practices, along with environmental and social responsibility underpin all aspects of this major. You work in open plan design studios and individual student work areas with wireless networking, and have access to worldclass laboratories and workshops. The Product Design major in the Bachelor of Design (BDes) will enable you to develop key skills in research, analysis, critical and creative thinking, design thinking, ideation, prototyping and communication.
