BA (Hons) Digital Design and Engineering
Digital technologies such as 3D printing and immersive media are driving the creative industries, influencing the development of products, spaces and services we engage with on a daily basis. Emerging technologies are providing new jobs and market opportunities for creative thinkers able to understand and effectively leverage the intersections between technical and design thinking.
According to NESTA (2014), 'employers are crying out for talent with a mix of arts and science knowledge'. This course is perfect for people who want to engage with this mix of design and technical thinking. Graduates from this degree will be highly skilled and knowleagable on design technologies such as digital fabrication, and will be able to creatively tackle challenges in emerging markets such as industrial design, automation and manufacturing.
