Content

This unit advances students' ability to identify, assess and integrate emerging technologies into the design process. The unit's goal is to apply this integrated knowledge to address real life design challenges. In a laboratory environment students work both individually and collaboratively in response to design briefs. This involves a dynamic combination of strategic project planning and roll out, international industry-based research, team building, experimentation and application.

Students are introduced to agile team structures and design methods with a complementary focus on technology to solve complex problems in a creative way. This unit requires students to prepare a case study which demonstrates and explains the process, development and strategic integration of technology and design within their project.

Students critically analyse findings delivered in both written and oral formats that culminate in a showcase pitch of final outcomes to explain ideas, design rationale, strategy and processes.
