About Product Design at Sheffield Hallam University

Designers play a central role in shaping products, processes and services. In their work, product design engineers must take account of technical constraints, aesthetics and market considerations. This is a structured, classroom-based course with full access to our extensive computer-aided design suites and workshops. You design and prototype working products through * drawings * models * calculation * testing. And you learn to balance the needs of users and the cost of manufacture. Our industrial partners provide real life projects for the course. They include companies designing * tools * lighting * aircraft engines * sport equipment such as badminton posts * equipment for medical care such as wheelchairs. We draw on a wide knowledge base including * design * mechanical engineering * information technology * mechatronics * manufacture and materials * computer-aided design and manufacture (CAD/CAM) * rapid prototyping. This broad course covers the supporting technological subjects for product design, but also includes * workshops * business * innovation * sustainability skills. We recommend you take a paid work placement in year three. A typical salary is £12,000. This year helps your personal development and allows you to apply your studies to the work environment.
