We have a range of advanced equipment ranging from 3D printers (Dimension uPrints and Fortus 250). Laser cutters (Epilog), CNC routers and individual work stations for each student which includes a computer running the relevant software.
Our students compete internationally. In 2016 three students exhibited their work at the Global Grad Show at the Dubai Design Week.
The Industrial Design Program at TUT is one of the lowest cost programs of its kind. Costs for equipment and materials are built into our fees.
We are the only institution based in Pretoria, that offers a qualification in Industrial Design.
As a program we aim to produce industry relevant graduates. We are hosted within the Faculty of Engineering and the Built Environment and therefore interface with various engineering disciplines (Mechanical. Electrical, Mechatronics, Industrial Engineering etc).
Students are taught on both industry leading software (Solidworks, Fusion 360, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop) as well as leading opensource software offerings (Blender 3D, Gimp, Inkscape)
