Course summary

Why choose this course at Central Saint Martins

World-class education: Central Saint Martins' Product and Industrial Design courses are recognized for world-class excellence by the award of the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Further and Higher Education 2013.

A changing discipline: The course provides a platform to question what the industry looks like today. We continually reappraise the scope of product and industrial design practices, addressing critical and socially responsive design.

Notable networks: We work actively with external partners from the industry, commerce and enterprise, as well as our extensive network of alumni and staff.

Integrated teaching: A key factor of MA Industrial Design is integrated study and studio learning. The course adopts a studio-based approach, exercised through project work and workshops.

A typical graduate should have a thorough knowledge of contemporary product design and development and be able to adopt a critical perspective on both their own work and that of their contemporaries. In addition, the emphasis on self-directed study should equip graduates with appropriate methods and strategies for successful project management both within teams and as individuals. The typical aspiration of graduates is to find work in the consulting field. Following significant shifts in this industry over the last 10-15 years, many graduates working in consultancy find themselves in roles that can be described as designer, design strategy, service innovation, forecasting, or management in addition to straightforward new product development.

The second largest area of graduate employment is through in-house design for manufacturing companies. Increasingly students establish their own studios and have moved to work in charitable organizations and the third sector. A number develop careers in commercial research and progress to study at PhD. Graduates are now distinguished and respected designers and design managers in international companies.
