It was a super fun course that was a mixture of mechanical engineering and industrial design. The first year was mostly the same as the mechanical engineering degree and then spun off a bit from there. Focussing more on longer design projects but still with more of a focus on the engineering side than a lot of other industrial design courses. Here's some of the highlights:

  • I graduated top in my class with a 1st which was delightful
  • Really enjoyed the modules on sketching, design process and realistic visualisations
  • Got absolutely destroyed during our critiques in front of industry experts which was a great training for public speaking and presenting
  • Did around 10 super fun longer design projects
  • Wrote my dissertation on the future of home design
  • Also there was a reasonable amount of tennis, squash, drinking and boogying down 🤪
