Industrial Design education in Newcastle upon Tyne can trace its origins back to a College of Art in the mid 50’s, but it was not until 1975 that the 4-year BA(Hons) Design for Industry course was introduced with the notion of combining industrial experience with design education. Since then, the course has produced well over a thousand graduates who have gone on to take significantly influential roles in design, business and education. Many becoming the most distinguished in their field. John Elliott, Principal Lecturer - Retired 2009.
