GMITs’ Industrial Design course structure gives you the core principles in design and it is amazing and surprising to see how often they come into practise in a real working environment.

As a student on the BA Design specialising in Textile & Fashion Design, I was fortunate to have two work placements split over the semester.

I undertook my work placement in Graphic Design & Illustration at two different places. I worked on a Wayfinding project for the GMIT CCAM campus for one day each week, and four days each week for SCCUL Enterprise Centre.
