LIFE AFTER THE PARTY_STUDENT EXPERIENCES AND GRADUATE EXPECTATIONS J. SPRUCE 2008.pdf - Published Version
This paper considers students’ experience of product design education, and explores their expectations of working in the design industry. It provides a contextualisation of recent initiatives that call for increased emphasis upon the commercial awareness of design within the curriculum. Evidence of the ‘disconnect’ between students’ perceptions of design practice and the increasing demands from the industry are detailed.
