Product design is an industry that is concerned with the design, manufacturing and use of products all around us. Each and every product we come across in our daily life will have had input from a product designer at some point in its development. Product designers are involved with the creation of new products, as well as the improvement of existing products to meet the requirements of consumers.
An undergraduate degree in product design will give you a foundation of knowledge around the area. You will study modules on material technology and science, design modelling, technical drawing, and design practice. These modules will develop your professional practice and theoretical knowledge.
Your degree will be delivered in a mixture of modes. These will include lectures and seminars, as well as practical sessions in design studios and workshops. You may also be required to take part in a work placement year or module.
