  • Situated in the heart of Swansea, one of the UKs most vibrant yet affordable cities, the School occupies the newly restored Grade II listed ALEX building. The campus is literally just two minutes from the centre of Swansea and all the shopping and leisure facilities you would expect, with the rapidly developing Maritime and Cafe Quarters just a few minutes further.

    Swansea is also the gateway to the outstanding natural beauty of the Gower Peninsula, a haven for outdoor enthusiasts and surfers. So our students enjoy the best of both worlds, exciting nightlife and some of the best beaches and countryside in Europe!

    The School itself has excellent facilities including dedicated design studios and well equipped prototyping workshops and every student is guaranteed a personal studio workspace. Students can gain experience of working with wood, metal,

    plastics, glass and ceramics, automotive styling clay, and the latest versions of industry-standard 3D design and visualisation software such as Autodesk AliasStudio, Solidworks and Adobe Creative Suite. This is linked to a comprehensive CAD/CAM and rapid prototyping facilities including 3D Systems, Z-Corp, Ultmaker, Fortus, Roland and Stratasys machines.

    Our teaching is supported by a proactive approach to research and commercial engagement. This ensures that we meet the highest academic and professional standards and deliver the qualifications and experience relevant to industry. Industrial Design is a forward-looking and inclusive discipline and the School welcomes all applications.

    Dr Ian Walsh, Head of School

    ADMISSION & SELECTIONAll our undergraduate programmes are 3 years full-time and normally have a minimum entry requirement of 260 points (UCAS tariff) plus successful interview with full portfolio.

    All postgraduate programmes are 2 years part-time or 1 year full-time and normally have a minimum requirement of a good honours degree in a relevant discipline.

    In 2014, the School of Industrial Design will be moving into the newly refurbished Alexandra Road building. ALEX, is based in the Swansea Arts Quarter and will offer more opportunities for collaboration between different creative courses and enable us to build on our already strong studio culture.

  • IN THE STUDIOS ...

    ARE YOU READY TO TAKE THIS ON?

    So you have decided to study Industrial Design but you may not really appreciate, just yet, what is required of an Industrial Designer. If you pause for a second and look around you every manufactured artefact you see, touch and interact with, good or bad, has been designed! Think about the variety of ways in which the things around you impact on your life; physically, socially, emotionally, economically and environmentally... If the world we design is to have a positive impact on our lives then

    we have to continually develop the right skills, knowledge, understanding and personal and professional attributes. These programmes have been developed and resourced to provide you with the right stuff to kick-start your future as an IndustrialDesigner. All we ask of you is that you get stuck in and make the most of it!

    PRODUCT DESIGN BA/BSc(Hons)Product designers define the world around us, they give it form and material quality, they make it usable and sensible and they have to do this in an economic and sustainable way. Both programmes deal with the design and development of mass-produced consumer products, systems and services. Where they differ is in their approach to new product development.

    StressStrainProgramme Philosophy:Our vision is to produce design professionals able to respond creatively to the changing needs of people in a commercially and environmentally sustainable manner.

    BA(Hons) Product Design This programme explores the human-centred aspects of product design. Students are encouraged to focus on people, exploring the visual and socio-cultural perspectives to better understand our relationships with consumer products. A heavy emphasis is placed on evaluating human needs, both utilitarian and emotional, in our interaction with designed

    artefacts. Emphasis is placed on idea generation, form development and product styling through studio and workshop practice, allied with a sound understanding of materials and manufacturing. The programme integrates traditional studio practice with state-of-the-art digital tools, with students utilising the latest versions of industry-standard computer aided design and visualisation software, and rapid prototyping facilities.

    BSc(Hons) Product Design This programme integrates the use of industry standard, state-of-the-art, digital design tools and time compression technologies into the design process

    allowing for the exploration and realisation of product solutions through creative, technical and analytical design practices. There is a strong emphasis on the detailed resolution of product proposals with regard to the enabling technologies, material choice and manufacturing criteria. This programme of study gives students the opportunity to develop the skills, knowledge and intellectual abilities to undertake the computer aided design and development of new products based upon a clear understanding of scientific and technological principles.

    Research & Industrial LinksThe teaching team are all experienced designers who are either engaged in industrial practice or are research active. The courses include live design projects which enable students to engage with both major companies and small entrepreneurial businesses. Staff practice, industrial contact and live projects ensures that students are fully prepared for the demands of employment.
