Unique selling points of the programme • Design is presented as a coherent academic discipline, and career choice, that provides a foundation for students to map, from clearly articulated user needs to well-justified and well-developed solutions • Students have the opportunity to participate in collaborative projects and/or internship opportunities at a wide variety of national and multinational companies that use industrial design • XJTLU is located in one of China’s most multicultural cities, which provides a unique perspective on industrial design and its intercultural flexibility • Earn two degrees: an XJTLU degree from the Chinese Ministry of Education and a globally recognised degree from the University of Liverpool, a member of the Russell Group of leading UK universities. Knowledge and skills By studying BEng Industrial Design you will gain a strong understanding of: • technological methods and creative skills in the development and production of products, consumer goods, interactive products and services • social, cultural and historical aspects that influence the design of products and services • cross-cultural aspects of designing for Chinese and other contexts. Skills you will acquire include: • creative, innovative and rational thinking • user research, visualisation and model-making • designing material products and interactive services • presenting and documenting design development processes. Modules: Year One UK degrees are three years long whereas in China they are four, therefore we do accept students with certain qualifications directly into Year Two, which is the start of the main academic programme. Most students, however, enter into Year One, which provides students with a range of interesting modules, language classes and core skills for your degree. In Year One, BEng Industrial Design students take modules including calculus (MTH013), multivariable calculus (MTH008), physics (PHY004) and design expressions (2D) I and II (IND001 and IND002).

Nowadays, industrial designers are multi-skilled specialists who are required to be able to do much more than find a perfect balance between form and functionality. Society is changing at a rapid pace and its needs are rapidly changing with it. Industrial designers need to recognize these changes and understand them in order to design effectively. Students of the Industrial Design programme will learn about the newest production technologies, the basics of design and research methods whilst looking at real examples and discovering how the whole design process works from concept, planning, testing to production. Courses - examples 3D Modelling Robotics Ergonomics Product Design Creating and Designing Materials Analysis of Social Trends Technical Drawing Mechanics and Construction Career opportunities: Design studios, research firms, production enterprises, media work in industrial design. Communication Design Who are the people that design the interactive, digital world around us? Who are the people behind smartphones, tablets and the thousands of applications that accompany these devices? Who creates the apps that help us interface with this new expanded reality? Who helps us navigate this world and who helps us interact with these new modes of communication? Interactive designers and user experience designers at School of Form. With the explosion and rapid development of technology, one of the most popular design specialisations has become Interactive Design. School of Form was the first such school in Poland to offer students the chance to further their education in this field. Interactive Design is one of the main components of the Communication Design programme together with classes that teach students how to use and manipulate video images and new media in 3D space (photography and video, VJing, mapping, film, video prototypes, animation and web design) and classical visual communication (graphic design and outdoor advertising).
