At Sussex, we develop innovative and creative solutions to shift our society towards a more sustainable and regenerative future for all – people and planet.
You’ll learn to design for social impact and solve real-world challenges. And you’ll explore emerging technologies and the exciting opportunities they offer creative practitioners.
You’ll also have the opportunity to work on live briefs. This will give experience of working with – and receive feedback from – experts from a wide range of companies. The environmental impact of products are always at the forefront of what we do. You’ll learn to understand the full life-cycle of your designs, along with the impact of our decisions as designers.
