Bachelor of Product Design | Otago Polytechnic
The Bachelor of Design (Product) aims to equip students with the tools, techniques and competence, required to work in their chosen career path within the extremely broad field of professional design. The whole model is cognisant of the fact that the design business and industry is becoming more complex and collaborative. Designers need to be broad-based and with some understanding of other specialisations to be able to proactively respond to our society. Product designers need most of all to understand user and market needs to create new products or redesign existing ones, apply their technical knowledge and conceptual skills to achieve the goal of a sustainable product. We arm our design students with the technical, practical, and conceptual skills to fulfil the cultural, ecologic and economic implications of their role as a designer.

Kuang Ma | Master of Design Enterprise | Otago Polytechnic
Chinese-born Kuang Ma describes himself as always being a very ‘hands on’ person. From the age of six he was using a soldering iron to make radios and model aeroplanes. Kuang’s parents wanted him to study IT, but he chose to make his childhood hobby his career and studied Mechatronic Engineering instead. “Mechatronics was my passion, I just love to have something where you can control the movement rather than just programming a computer.” Kuang graduated from Singapore with a Diploma in Mechatronics and set up several companies where he worked on developing automation, robotic and drone products. After deciding he wanted to teach, Kuang started an undergraduate degree in Singapore and completed a Master of Science in Manufacturing System Engineering in Hong Kong before moving back to lecture at the Hubei Three Gorges Polytechnic to be near his sick grandparents. It was the birth of his son that prompted him move to New Zealand. “I wanted to have a better environment for my son and New Zealand is heaven for kids.” Kuang was interested in working on the Otago Polytechnic electric vehicle project until he was introduced to the Master of Design Enterprise. “My companies developed engineering products which had very advanced technology and were very cost effective but the customers often weren’t happy. After I started the Masters programme I knew why, it was because the designs weren’t human-centred.” Kuang found the programme challenging. “In the beginning I was really struggling because that way of thinking was totally different for me. I had to transform myself from being an engineer to being a designer and understanding what the user wanted and needed. I had to think like Steve Jobs.” For his Masters, Kuang designed a universal robot chassis for agriculture. “I visited farms, interviewed farmers and found out where there was a gap to fit this technology. The Masters programme taught me to think totally differently, I’d recommend it to anyone, especially engineers who want to ‘re-engineer’ themselves into being a designer and making the world different.” For more info visit: http://www.op.ac.nz/design

Culinary Arts Team - Tertiary Teaching Excellence Award winners
Reaping accolades in the fiercely competitive culinary word is becoming a regular occurrence at Otago Polytechnic's Food Design Institute. Most recently, the well-established Bachelor of Culinary Arts (BCA) team have become recipients of the National Tertiary Teaching Excellence Award; the first from Otago Polytechnic, to win an award as a team. Led by the BCA team, the Bachelor of Culinary Arts programme is one of the only design-led culinary arts degrees in the world, fuelled by innovation and adventure in cooking. "The course doesn't have a cookie-cutter approach to how we teach," says BCA Senior Lecturer, Tony Heptinstall. "The students produce individualised projects, gain individualised learning and chose their own destination through our programme." The BCA team's appetite for sharing culinary innovation has led to the abandonment of the master-apprentice model of education; replacing it with a customised programme in which teachers and students co-create the knowledge and learning. "It's not only the teacher delivering the programme to the student; it's the student feeding us knowledge back, and that expands the programme," says BCA Lecturer, Stephen Ellwood. "With the student being engaged, they ask more questions and they have more ideas." Mr Heptinstall says they encourage their students to question everything. "One of our major mottos is not 'Yes, chef', it's 'Why, chef?' " BCA Senior Lecturer Daniel Pfyl says their team works so well together because "we are open to all ideas, have robust discussions and always keep the students at the forefront of our teaching and learning".
