Program description

Product Design - BA

Every product began as an idea. On this course, you’ll take your ideas through a journey towards completion. Craft sleek products from scratch, taking them from scale drawings to the final prototype. You’ll have the freedom to create original products without anything holding you back. Product design is more than vibrant colours and sensual designs. It’s about innovative concepts that have an impact on the world.

Create drafts, designs and prototypes

Embrace the creative side of design. You’ll use a range of industry standard 3D CAD and CAD/CAM systems, and some fantastic workshop facilities to produce 3D models, fully working prototypes, computer models and animations. Explore different solutions for a number of areas, working with real clients as you use your expertise to create products with a purpose.

Play an important role in a number of industries

Product design skills can equip you to work in areas such as special effects, medical equipment design, games environment design, technical illustration, model making and architectural visualisation. Part of the role includes working with clients and getting to understand exactly what they want as an end product.

With experience, you’ll have the vision and integrity to respond to the needs of society.
