AMME9401: Industrial and Product Design Engineering

2024 unit information

AMME9401 Industrial and Product Design is a multidisciplinary project-based unit where students use their existing engineering knowledge and analytical skills to design and prototype a product for human use using the AMME Makerspace/Fablab facilities. Students will use elements of human centred and industrial design theory and techniques to develop skills in industrial and product design and apply these skills in a design studio setting in the context of new/improved product development.
