What to expect

Bachelor of Design (Industrial Design)

This hands-on program gets you involved with the design of realistically detailed products suitable for manufacture with a focus on real-world industry engagement.

Your studies include learning the creative design process, technical aspects of product design, design management, computer-aided industrial design (CAID) technology, human factors and ergonomics, and design research, coupled with innovation, aesthetics, marketing, cultural and social values and design leadership.

You will be prepared for your career with a range of activities and opportunities such as hands-on design units, project presentations, international study tours, entrepreneurial incubation programs and real-world internships. You'll also benefit from our strong collaborative links with world-class international and national industry professionals.

Many graduates work as industrial designers in consultancies or design departments of product manufacturers, or as entrepreneurs who design their own products. Use your double degree skills as an in-house lawyer for industrial designers, corporate identity designers, new product developers, or as an intellectual property lawyer.

Other careers include usability expert, service designer, interaction designer, interface designer, corporate identity designer, model maker, movie concept designer, visualisation expert, automotive designer, design manager, design researcher, computer-aided design expert, game designer, design leadership expert and strategic design expert.

Bachelor of Laws (Honours)

The defining nature of our law degree is the unique balance between theory and practice. During your degree, you will complete the academic law units required for admission to legal practice, and choose elective units that align with your career interests.

Through your study you will develop necessary legal skills such as legal research, problem solving, dispute resolution, and oral and written communication.

Our course will also help you understand and promote the ethical standards of the legal profession and to appreciate international and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives.

Our Bachelor of Laws (Honours) is a higher qualification than a bachelor degree, as it has honours-level content integrated throughout the course. The advanced knowledge and skills in this course will benefit your professional career, or future research and study.

Careers and outcomes

Careers and outcomes

Use your skills as an in-house lawyer for industrial designers, corporate identity designers, new product developers, or as an intellectual property lawyer.

Professional recognition

The law degree is approved by the Queensland Legal Practitioners Admissions Board. If you want to become a lawyer at the end of your degree, you will need to complete further practical legal training (PLT) before you can apply for admission to practice. Successful completion of PLT allows you to apply for admission as solicitor, but if you want to be a barrister you will need to also pass the Bar Exams. We offer PLT in the form of the Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice.
