Product Design BA (Hons)

This well-established and cutting-edge course will give you the skills and guidance you need to develop successful commercial products. You’ll be encouraged to take a creative and innovative approach to problem-solving, while also addressing the functional, social and economic needs of your design.  We are also able to offer an extended undergraduate award of Master of Design (MDes) Product Design.

During your time studying on this degree you'll learn all the practical skills necessary to work in the sector as well as examining the theory behind product design, so that when you graduate you'll have a balanced view of the product development process to complement your practical experience.

You will spend year 3 on a work placement, gaining a minimum of 30-weeks experience in a relevant industry. Following your placement year you will be able to choose between following either a BA (Hons) or a BSc (Hons) award title. The BSc (Hons) option focuses on the technological aspect of design, whereas the BA (Hons) option focuses on the aesthetic and contextual issues relating to Product Design.

This course is also accredited by the Institution of Engineering Designers (IED) to fully meet the requirements for Registered Product Designer (RProdDes) registration for 2019-2023 intake years.
