Product design is the study of how we interact with products and services. This course explores how we can use that knowledge to create and design better experiences for everyone.
This highly regarded course focuses on developing well-rounded designers with the skills and knowledge to produce both digital and physical products and services. User-centred research is at the centre of this course and you will work on researching, creating and evaluating new ideas and turning them into tangible inventions.
You will study aesthetics and sustainability as well as manufacturing through prototyping and basic electronics. Our lecturers and visiting professionals will give you a unique insight into product design and will help you to develop your direction as a designer.
You will learn technical skills through the completion of hands-on, practical work alongside presentation and pitching skills, and knowledge of the conceptual design process.
