Inclusive Design Master in Science - At the institution - Coventry - West Midlands
A Bachelor's degree in design, ergonomics, engineering or another related discipline plus an interest in the practice of design.
Inclusive design is an approach to design that covers a range of disciplines; it aims to foster an enabling attitude when products and services are conceived that properly address issues of disability and changes to people as they age.
Inclusive Design Master in Science
Many developed countries will see an increase in the number of people over 50 in the general population; government statistical analysis predicts that in the UK those over 65 will increase from a base (in 2000) of 24.4% to 32.8% by 2025.
Designing just for these groups may produce products and solutions that somehow identify a difference that could promote an excluded and abnormal sense. Good inclusive design examines user needs, identifies approaches to providing solutions to minor ailments and the effects of aging, by producing designs that not only help those groups but the whole population.
The British Standard on Inclusive Design, BS 7000-6, was published in 2005 giving guidance to those involved with design, architecture and corporate life.
This course promotes the aims of the standard and embeds them in design activity for products, transport devices and spaces in and around buildings.
The course is linked and shares some modules with Design and Transport, Design and Ergonomics and Industrial Product Design.
Part of the course content will be available for continuing professional development and short course awareness programmes.
This course is closely associated with the Health Design and Technology Institute and makes use of facilities, expertise and collaborations promoted by the HDTI.
