Course Description

This exciting course will develop your creative skills along with your technical expertise. As a product designer you’ll be creating items that answer people’s needs and improve their lives.

Your work will involve you in current topical social or environmental issues, and you’ll have the satisfaction of beginning with a concept and taking this through the design stages to a finished product.

You’ll develop advanced skills in areas such as sketching, rendering, presentation techniques, model-making and manufacture. The design process involves continuous research to develop a viable and innovative product or strategy. 

During the course you’ll develop creative and technical skills, and we’ll give you a thorough grounding in applied production, engineering and materials exploration and technology.

By the time you graduate you’ll be generating highly complex design solutions. You’ll be familiar with using a variety of methods to produce models and prototypes such as 3D CAD using high-end industry specification software, and model making using our traditional workshops and digital and fabrication facilities.
