About the Bachelor of Design
Wintec’s Bachelor of Design is for those who want to work in Illustration, Graphic Design, Web & Interactive Design, Motion Animation and Fashion Design, UX and Service Design.
In this increasingly complex world, designers and problem solvers are in hot demand. This degree is for the person with a flair for creative problem solving and helping make our experience of the world a whole lot better.
The Bachelor of Design is also co-delivered with other degrees from the creative suite of programmes. You’ll gain depth within your own discipline as well as breadth across other creative disciplines.
The Bachelor of Design has endorsements in Visual Communication and Fashion Design.
As our digital world continues to rapidly evolve, designers need to be able to implement their skills across multiple platforms. You will gain practical, creative and critical skills to find effective design solutions while learning the art of keeping pace with technical requirements for print, digital and experience based contexts.
The Fashion endorsement of the Bachelor of Design will prepare you for a career in the global fashion industry with a focus on design and the commercial business of fashion. Classes provide a learning environment that allows you to develop your individual ideas and gain strong technical skills in construction and pattern making.
How the degree works
Don’t get us wrong – you will learn things. Some of them will amaze you.
You’ll learn from some of the best tutors around and from top professionals currently working in your field of study.
But you’ll do other awe inspiring things too.
You’ll work in teams solving actual design problems. You’ll be guided, of course, but no one will tell you the answers. You’ll work together to figure it out. And when you don’t, which will happen from time to time, that’ll be when you learn the most.
It’ll be exciting, and – maybe – just a little bit scary at times. (Not because of us – we’re nice as pie and here to mentor you – but because challenging yourself is just about always a bit scary.)
You’ll also gain work experience in industry, later in your degree. Trust us, you’ll be more than ready for this when it comes!
What you won’t get
We’ve done away with old-style classrooms, lecture timetables, exams and endless PowerPoint presentations.
What you will get is a learning environment built around coaching, mentoring and collaboration.
Trust us when we say this is not a soft option. You will work hard, really hard. And we’ll be really straight with you in our feedback, because we want you to succeed in life and in your career.
If you’re up for that kind of approach, you’ll love these degrees. Best of all, you’ll leave here ready to launch right into your chosen career.
