Become an industrial designer with a degree built for the digital world. Swinburne’s Bachelor of Design (Industrial Design) (Honours) teaches you to tap into your inner innovator and creator.

From furniture to mobile phones, you’ll be ready for any design brief that comes your way. You'll think about materials, not just maths. Study the emotional impact of design, as well as the mechanics of structures.

This is a contemporary industrial design course, where creativity meets practicality (learn to start an online business!), new technologies and sustainability – a combination that will set you apart from the pack.

You'll also build up your CV with real industry experience while you study through our Work Integrated Learning programs, which are a guaranteed part of all our bachelor degrees and can include placements, internships or industry-linked projects. In this degree, in units DFM: Applied Innovation Studio 1 and 2 (DDD60030 and DDD60031) or Capstone: Industrial Design Major Project 1 and 2 (DID40001 and DID40002), you'll work on industry-linked projects to create 3D objects that people will reach for every day – beautiful, user-centred and technically flawless.

We welcome you to join the ranks of Alessi Design Award, James Dyson Award, Dezeen Global Graduate Show Top 10 and GOTYA winners, runners-up and nominees.
