Course content

Our MSc in Product Design will provide a thorough training in design theories and methods including product aesthetics and human-centred design, as well as the utilisation of advanced design techniques in digital modelling and physical rapid prototyping of design solutions.

The course will appeal to graduates of courses in industrial/product design or innovation-related courses who wish to influence future thinking and practice design.

Studying within our Department of Design, Manufacturing & Engineering Management, you'll have access to some of the leading academics in the whole product development life cycle and benefit from their experience in industry, current research projects and advancements in those fields.

We are the only department in the UK that combines end-to-end multidisciplinary expertise from creative design, through engineering design, manufacture and management of the entire system. This is more commonly split between art school and engineering faculties; however, we can provide you with a broader understanding of the overall process and expertise in each area, in a single department.
