Course content

This new course is an innovative collaboration between Manchester School of Art, Faculty of Science & Engineering and MMU Business School. The course brings together students from creative and manufacturing backgrounds to study together on projects that challenge personal approaches to product design, engage with the technical constraints of manufacturing and explore the creative use of materials and processes.

Features

Graduates will develop skills suitable for roles such as design for engineering and manufacturing, design consultancy, design management, and design research and development within industry, or within academic research and teaching. The programme will also prepare graduates who wish to go on to self-employment, establishing and running their own design/manufacturing businesses.

You will develop advanced skills in contemporary digital design and manufacturing technologies, embracing the creative opportunities they offer product designers. The business unit develops project planning and management skills, raises understanding of markets and marketing opportunities and highlights the financial factors that impact on product development within commercial manufacturing environments.


You will learn through individual and group projects, presentations and portfolios of research. You will develop a portfolio of work with reference to professional business practice, providing experience of what it is like to work in contemporary design and manufacturing environments. In addition to the project work, you will be required to reflect on your work during the year via your own blog. This will act as a key resource for your final written submission.
