Circular design challenges the idea that things should be used once and thrown away. In this subject, students learn about a systems approach to design, in which resources are re-used and any waste created feeds back into the design loop to create something new. Designers play key role in product development, applying their skills in design thinking to create innovative solutions addressing waste generation and the sustainable and ethical sourcing of materials. Students will engage with real world examples and design their own products, adopting the philosophy of circular design.
