This unit develops intermediate design research skills and strategies for identifying opportunities of human interactions with complex products or systems. In it you will strengthen and apply your design, visualisation, model-making and CAD skills at an intermediate level while dealing with UCD principles at an advanced level to produce designs suitable for manufacturing. A core responsibility of the Industrial Designer is the interpretation of human interactions with complex products or systems. In this unit you will apply advanced design research methods to gain a detailed understanding of the user within the product's social, cultural and technological context, and use design strategies to enhance the user-product experience. This unit builds on knowledge and experience gained in earlier ID foundation units. It builds your skills and knowledge in the area of interaction and experience allowing for integration of skills and knowledge in the capstone unit.
