During your studies you will compile a portfolio of creative and inspiring designs which are unique to your individual approach and which will showcase your talent and expertise to potential employers.

You’ll cover all aspects of product design in our purpose-built design studios and workshops. We have traditional workshops as well as digital and fabrication facilities that boast industry standard equipment.

By studying product design, you’ll be gaining a range of skills.  You’ll learn to experiment and think both creatively and analytically and you’ll develop research skills relevant to the history and context of the product and the materials and processes used to develop the design.

You’ll gain an understanding of the marketing and branding appropriate to your project work. And you’ll master design skills including drawing, sketching, rendering, sketch modelling, computer modelling and prototype making, investigating, researching, interviewing, debating, presenting and working in a team. We’ll also give you advanced computer representation and photography skills.

Our well-established links with local businesses mean you’ll have the chance to work on real-life project briefs. These projects often lead to work experience and career opportunities. 

And of course there is also the potential for designing products with direct commercial value.
