Course summary

This course has both eyes (and hands) on the technological side of design — the making and manufacturing of products, systems, and services. It’s a great option if you’re naturally curious about design engineering, and looking for a practical, hands-on approach.We’ll be analysing form and function in design, encouraging your creativity whilst also taking a specialist’s dive into areas like electronics and robotics, mechatronic techniques, materials testing, and manufacturing. We’ll explore the emerging trends — things like UX, smart technology, and sustainability.In product teardowns, you’ll ‘reverse engineer’ items from the inside, and then design out their flaws; on site visits, you’ll receive live project briefs from some of the industry’s biggest players, who’ll review and feedback on your work. You could even test your skills on a year-long professional placement; our previous assignments have included TATA, Samsung, Autodesk (San Francisco), and Hubs (Amsterdam).We’ve developed this course to ensure you’re not just an option for employers, but their priority. You’ll graduate with a designer’s eye for innovation, an engineer’s skill in manufacturing, and a CEO’s appetite for the bottom line. That’s a powerful package — and it’s why our graduates secure work with companies like Dyson, Disney, Unilever, and McLaren F1.**Why choose this course?**- **You’ll be part of a genuine community.** Our students love this course’s studio culture — it promotes discussion and collaboration, encourages experimentation and the constant swapping of ideas, and it’s somewhere to call your own.- **You’ll be using the same equipment as the professionals.** We’ve invested in industry-standard tools and tech to minimise the jump from uni to work. From 3D printers to waterjet cutters and bandsaws to robotics kits, we’ve got the lot.- ** We’re industry-focused, with great connections.** Through live projects and placements, you’ll be working face-to-face with some huge names — the likes of Tesco, PepsiCo and JCB. It’s great for your portfolio and CV, and you’ll also get excellent employability support.- **Compete, exhibit, and get yourself noticed!** Prove your talents to industry reps — exhibitions like New Designers and NTU’s annual Degree Show are fixtures in the product design calendar, while our students have won big at competitions like the Starpack Awards and Engineers Without Borders.
