This is a work-related-learning where you learn design-led approaches to problem solving through iterative cycles of discover, design, develop, and deliver to prototype potential solutions. You will find these skills applicable in whichever later career you pursue. For this course you will be working alongside students from other disciplines on live client projects at Aberdeen City Council or other organisations. The goal is to create sustainable projects that will continue beyond the course as it is adopted by the host organisation in order to develop a better city and community.
