“On average, it takes a (design) graduate two years to get their first job, but 76% of Student Award winners walk into a job or placement within 3 months.” The minor project is an opportunity for students to diversify their portfolios and broaden career opportunities with a project(s) taken from national and international student design competitions. By working on briefs set outside of the college, students can widen their scope for employment and evidence successful team-working on their resume and in portfolios. It enables students to assess their professional skills, redefine ideas and strategies for art, media and design and provide quickly visualized outcomes in response to creative briefs. Students are encouraged to take risks, but also work to their strengths. However, while there is a range of project briefs to choose from, students are cautioned not to venture into creative disciplines that are beyond their skillset. Students are required to work in teams of two or three, and interdisciplinary groups drawn from across programs and year groups* are strongly encouraged. *NOTE: The course is also offered as an elective.
