About Product Design Futures at Bournemouth University

Product Design Futures looks at the future of design, challenging existing design direction and thinking and consideration of where it needs to go, informed by the exploration of design trends, societal change, emerging technologies and environmental issues.  This new and innovative course will focus on the ethical development of new products and how they can be designed to enhance value to the user whilst being sustainable and having less environmental impact.

The course will develop your understanding of the impact that the design of products has on the world and the way we live. Environmental and ethical issues are increasingly important when dealing with the design of products; the choice of materials, the use of energy, disposal and potential recyclability are key considerations for the product lifecycle from cradle to grave.
