Our independent study options, as well as the optional honours year, allow you to further develop your skills in a specific area and work on your own project ideas. (third year) "My Design Studio tutor works for Google and encouraged me to apply for an internship. I'm now a user experience designer on the Android Google Maps team. We work with researchers and engineers to design new products and features. It's heaps of fun! Working here is very similar to what I do in my degree. At university we have to collaborate with other designers and work to a brief while still being creative and willing to try new things. We are always asking each other questions or helping each other out. It's very similar to how things work at Google where everyone is encouraged to collaborate and bounce ideas off each other. The internship has countless benefits. It's helped me to understand the kind of job I want. Being able to apply what I've learned in my degree has been very rewarding and I'm learning new things every day." I graduated with first class honours from the University of Sydney in Design Computing in 2007 and was awarded the University Medal for my research on information aesthetic data visualisation. The studios in the ensure that you consider the brief and understand users' needs. That's essentially the same as industry. coach outlet sale your house The courses set you up to be a great project manager as well as technically skilled at design. Data visualisation is multidisciplinary. You need to understand the visuals and how to make your content engaging as well as understand the theoretical side that underpins the work you do. It's hard to find people who tick all those boxes, so we're pleased with the graduates of Design Computing that we've hired. I fell in love with the flexibility of this program on Open Day. At the time, no other University offered a course like this and after extensive research, I knew this was the course for me. I believe Design is in everything! And it should beimplementedas a part of every project (software or hardware). UserExperience design ispresently thebest method for creating successful products and services. I am currently a UX designer in the Innovation team at PwC Australia. As a day job I get to test cutting edge technology on real users,tackling unusual designchallenges. My studies in Design Computing have equipped me with a diverse range of technical skills and design methodologies that can be readily applied to solve problems in an innovative way, as well as practical skills that allow these solutions to be rapidly implemented and evaluated. The studio work on large scale projects created a stimulating environment for teamwork, critique, and innovation, and allowed me to explore my creative interest: intersecting design with technology and art. The lecturers and tutors were very supportive and it was great to be surrounded by such a diverse range of peers, united by a love of design, technology and all things geeky! Studying the Design Computing program has coach outlet jacksonville fl given me the ability to be effective in my role of designing solutions for various clients. I learnt the very important skills of iterative design and 'questioning everything' along with enough technical knowledge to allow me to communicate with developers involved in projects. My advice to current and future students is to continually build, whenever you find a little annoyance in the world try and design a solution for it. You don't have to be a programming genius or technical whiz to do DesComp. You just need to be interested in design and be genuinely curious about how things work. The Design Computing studio environment and small lectures make for an excellent creative environment. In the final third year studio, I developed a jacket that would guide the wearer through the city without the need of a screen. At the time, I wanted to develop what I initially called the Urban NavJacket, but I knew the technology and my skills were lacking. So instead, I completed Honours, travelled, and then worked a full time job for a year. Whilst in between jobs I found a bit of time to work on my own projects. I started to reboot the old code, and at the same time I was fortunate enough to meet up with one of my Design Computing classmates who happened to work at a company eager to establish a 'wearables' division. They needed some ideas, so I was brought in as a researcher/consultant. From there, I began developing and they began marketing what is now called the Navigate Jacket. The jacket was most recently featured in Vogue and showcased at GroupM's mLab, alongside the likes of Google Glass. I think a lot of it was luck, but also knowing which trend was on the rise. I was unsure what career I wanted, but I have always had a creative streak. When I attended the design computing seminar at the University of Sydney, I was captivated and knew this was the course I really wanted to do.
This degree has helped me so much for my future after university. The degree coordinator often holds careers events at the University for all design computing students to attend. One of these events led me to apply for an internship with Razorfish, which I am super excited about commencing.
