Design for Industry

The Design for Industry short course, held over 10 weeks, was developed to re-skill local manufacturing workers in the areas of advanced manufacturing and emerging technology industries.

The course was developed following extensive industry consultation with the Caterpillar Transition Taskforce which identified education and training in industrial design as a key need.

The Department of State Growth provided funding to support the development and delivery of the program with the aim of reskilling local manufacturing sector workers in capabilities related to advanced manufacturing and emerging technology industries.

Course designer Andrew Dickinson said the students had experienced a steep learning curve ranging from hand sketching ideas, to high-end technology culminating in the successful development of a range of innovative prototypes.

The course concluded with a student exhibition in May 2017, where students were able to showcase their manufacturing prototypes.
