About Product Design at Bournemouth University

This integrated Master's is a new course that draws on all of our experience and the success we have had with both our BSc (Hons) Product Design degree and our BA (Hons) Product Design degree. The advantage of undertaking an integrated Master's is that you are eligible for a tuition fee loan for the entire course, including the postgraduate element – an option not available if you study a traditional Bachelor's degree followed by a standalone Master's.

You'll follow the same programme as the BA (Hons)/BSc (Hons) Product Design until your final year, with both of these courses designed to provide you with the skills you'll need to develop successful commercial products. This degree offers a well-balanced mix of practical experience and theoretical study of product design, ensuring that you leave with an excellent understanding of how products are made. This knowledge can inform your designs, allowing you to consider the practicalities of producing a design, as well as its overall function and appearance. 91% of our final year students think the course is intellectually stimulating. Join us on live chat now to find out more, or register to meet us at an open day.

This award title is new at BU, as a result of the Institution of Engineering Designers (IED) being granted the ability to award Chartered Technological Product Designer (CTPD) by Privy Council. CTPD provides a Chartered professional qualification for the first time for the product design profession. This degree has been accredited as fulfilling the requirements for Chartered Technological Product Designer (CTPD). You will be entitled to free membership of the IED too.

The opportunity to undertake a work placement in the third year of your course will give you invaluable experience of the industry, enabling you to further develop your skills and ensuring that you have practical experience and industry contacts once you graduate.
