Realise your creative ideas by developing design skills and in-depth knowledge of materials across areas as diverse as transport, sports equipment, toys, and packaging.
Product Design is the study of the whole design lifecycle – from idea to production. On this course you’ll study the functional and market-led requirements of product and furniture design, looking at ergonomics, aesthetics, usability and the application of technology.
Specific areas include visual language, branding, user-centred design, computer-aided design (CAD), 3D design and modelling, and design cultures. You’ll learn about sustainability and examine the development of socially conscious products that, through their technical specification, reduce waste and conserve energy.
You’ll study with professionally-active academic staff who are involved in commercial projects with big names such as Google USA, BAA Furniture & Interiors, and Adidas.
