The course has been developed in collaboration with employers to address the demand from government** and industry for modern business leaders able to exploit creativity in business. The course develops creative design literate engineers, scientists and management postgraduates. It is suitable for graduates from a variety of disciplines who recognise the importance of how creative practice and process can improve product and service development.
"This course encourages design thinking and innovation. It gives students a deeper understanding of how business, engineering and design work by learning each of the processes first hand. Students from any field or skill can be exposed to other disciplines therefore it gives them the ability to apply ‘design thinking’ in all aspects of industry."
