The Bachelor of Design is a specialist course that develops through theme studies in History and theory, Drawing foundation, and Design studios specific to each of the specialisations. These will come together in the form of a graduand exhibition normally developed during the final two studio units in the third year of the course.
 

  • A. History and theory studies
    History and theory units will equip you with the skills necessary to research design issues, and enable you to contextualise your own practice and communicate ideas and strategies. Through the prism of history, you will begin to situate the place of design in society by referencing pivotal art, design and architecture movements. Later units address issues of culture, society and specific design themes.
  • B. Drawing foundation
    This will assist you to develop the practical and intellectual skills required by art, design and architecture students in the discipline of drawing.
  • C. Design studios
    This is the component of the course through which you will develop key skills and concepts particular to your design discipline.


In the communication design studio units you will undertake a focussed exploration of a range of media and elements including typography, image, layout, two and three-dimensional design, interactivity, sound and motion as core components to their communication design solutions. Studio-based projects across both print and digital media platforms will develop skills in narrative structure, typography, image construction and manipulation, interactive communication processes, production methods and technologies, and the planning and management of design outcomes.

In the industrial design studio units you will undertake a focussed exploration of the range of issues, skills and techniques vital to the realisation of user-centred design. Through industrial design projects, you will learn about topics such as visualisation techniques, ergonomics, materials, production methods and technologies.

The Bachelor of Information Technology is a comprehensive course, structured in three equal parts. In the double degree course you complete:
 

  • A. Information technology specified study
    This will provide you with foundation skills and knowledge for your IT education and ensure a breadth of understanding of IT and its applications in organizations and society.
  • B. Information technology listed major
    This will provide you with a focused program of study that will develop your expertise in one area of Information technology. You will develop the practical and theoretical skills and knowledge in your chosen major needed to successfully plan, develop, implement and evaluate information products and systems.

All Monash undergraduate courses require you to have successfully completed a minimum of an Australian Year 12 qualification (or equivalent) and achieve the required academic entry score. Most Monash faculties generally use your most recent studies for admission however other guidelines may apply where your prior qualification may be considered.
