Description Designers responding to complex societal challenges require focus on people, places and systems thinking to make sense in guiding new investment in innovation. This unit builds industrial design expertise in four domains including human environments, responsible design, user-centred design, and technology development through applied design research, contextual inquiry methods, and articulation of innovation proposals through conceptual and validated physical modelling, and an interdisciplinary consultative viewpoint.
