Integrated Project is a culminating interdisciplinary Design course that encourages you to draw together insights and expertise from two or more specialisations within Design, or Design coupled with another approved creative/professional discipline. You will investigate a given situation or design context in response to nominated themes, issues or set of conditions specified in a socially-engaged design brief.

The course models professional studio practices by focusing on how designers and design function in society. You will work collaboratively in teams of people with different skill sets, drawing on a wide range of available knowledge and skills to produce an informed return brief, which is supported by relevant research, concept and material explorations. In order to realise project options for final presentation, the resulting Design solutions will integrate the needs of end users, identify and address constraints as well as syntehesise two or more fields of creative expertise to generate potentially unique and innovative ideas and outcomes.

Assessment in this course is based on submission and evaluation of a three stage project development process including:

1. Return brief and conceptual idea generation

2. Iterative design development examining possible solutions

3. Project contribution evidenced in final presentation

This course is available to all Year 3 BDes(Hons), BFA(Hons) and BMA(Hons) students studying one or more Design studios. You can take it either as an alternative to one of your Year 3 studio courses in Ceramic Design, Jewellery, Graphics Media, Spatial Design, Object Design and Textile Design, or choose it as an Elective in addition to completing your one or two 4-course Design studios.

To enrol in this Level 3 course you must have previously completed two related Level 2 courses in at least one Design studio at Art & Design, or the equivalent in another approved field of creative / professional endeavour.
