Aims of the programme:
This course guides students through the first year of graduation, both with new and challenging projects, but also advice on the graduates’ first real-life projects. The idea being to enable students to undertake the greater depth of research and experiment to a more advanced design level. This enables students to gain the skills, knowledge and understanding which is vital during their first year of practice. This course also allows students to specialise in one chosen area and to investigate this to greater detail.
