Program description

BA (Hons) Product Design

Product design is the blend between art and engineering, and the projects you undertake will bring together both sides of this fascinating discipline – helping to ensure a balanced portfolio and inspiring you to become a confident creative designer.

Throughout the course you will be provided with a range of learning experiences, and the necessary support to develop transferable skills that enable you to work within the broader creative industries after graduation. A number of units also allow you to create, make and retail products in our shop Re:So, and many students also work on professional freelance jobs in their second year through our Solent Creatives initiative.

Admission requirements

Product design at Solent University is ideal for students with a background in art, graphics, design, or engineering. It’s a Bachelor of Arts honors program, but with sufficient engineering content and understanding to ensure you can apply for membership to the Institution of Engineering Designers (IED).
