Course content

This course aims to provide graduates not only with enhanced skills in creative product design, but a deeper understanding of the cognitive, cultural and physical needs of users that inform new product design and development.

It will provide a thorough training in design theories and methods including product aesthetics and human-centred design, and 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.
