This exhibition provides a forum for students to present their work to the local profession as well as an opportunity for the public to see the possible future for products and systems. The event is highly regarded in the sector, creating employment opportunities for students. The exhibition will include presentation boards and models explaining the designs on display.

What is Industrial Design?
Industrial designers create the form and function of the thousands of products people use every day, including electronic devices, domestic appliances and homewares, efficient workplace products, tools for safer and more effective industrial applications, sports equipment to improve safety and performance, fashion accessories, new car concepts, toy and game design, furniture and medical equipment.
They focus on the aesthetics, function, usability and social significance of manufactured objects and play a key role in determining how products are made, the materials used and environmental sustainability.
Industrial designers explore the practical issues that influence product design, such as ergonomics, manufacturing technologies, trend forecasting, sustainability, and how this knowledge informs the design of products that make people’s lives safer, easier and more efficient.
UniSA industrial design degrees have a strong emphasis on hands-on, practical experience through design studios, model making and prototyping, work experience and the opportunity for international study.
