Cooperative Projects

BA(Hons) Scheme in Design/ SD4001 Cooperative Project

Cooperative projects provide final year students with opportunities to join collaborative projects sponsored by clients in both the commercial and non-profit sectors. Held over nine weeks between September and November, the Projects feature students from different disciplines addressing a mutually agreed design brief.

Students are required to:
• Develop an argument in support of their design proposal
• Develop the design or designs based on that proposal
• Be responsible for project planning, scheduling and management
• Present the design concept at the initial and final stages for feedback and discussion

• Project planning, scheduling and execution
• Student’s return brief to the client
• Defining the “Final Material Outcome” for the project
• Project research, analysis and conceptual exploration of issues
