Course content

Thinking beyond a product and the way it is designed, questioning its place in a particular setting and considering its importance in spatial contexts are all explored on our MA Product Design course at UCA Farnham.

Best suited to those with a hands-on, making background, you’ll be encouraged to think beyond a product itself, challenged to consider how the way a product is designed can influence an emotion or impact a space, and break away from convention as you tie in the traditional with the cutting edge.

UCA Farnham has a rich history and industry-wide reputation for its design courses and on this course, you’ll learn from a team of talented academics as well as visiting lecturers and partners with a wealth of industry experience.

You’ll undertake individual research projects using an integrated product design process, and develop design solutions which fit with an overarching theme, and for added inspiration you’ll have the opportunity to go on a study visit abroad alongside undergraduate design students and alumni, maintaining the sense of community among students.

UCA is extremely proud to encourage and develop sustainable design, and the Farnham campus is home to The Centre for Sustainable Design - a research centre which facilitates discussion and research on eco-design, and broader sustainability considerations in product and service development.

Graduates from our MA Product Design course have gone on to work in architectural firms, independent design studios, create their own businesses and roles in design management. Demand is high for graduates with technical skills in the product design industry, particularly those who have access to industry quality equipment and the know-how and passion to succeed. We aim to create product designers with a breadth of knowledge, the very latest industry experience and the passion and the drive to succeed in a fast-paced industry.
