Course summary

Product Design Engineering blends design principles, ergonomics, engineering science and technology to create new products. This is integrated with manufacturing processes, technology and knowledge to turn the designs into reality.Product Design Engineering is the process of developing functional products for customers that can be then sold by businesses in competitive markets. Product Design Engineering is fundamental to global market success and requires not only aesthetics and customer appeal, but also fitness for purpose and correct functionality, together with superior quality at a competitive price.It is only when design is combined with a knowledge of the opportunities presented by new design tools, new materials and manufacturing processes, that innovative ideas may be exploited to their full potential. This linking of product design with manufacturing technologies is demanded by a wide range of industrial and commercial sectors, and is critical to allowing quality products to be designed and produced in the right quantities, to an appropriate level of quality and at the right price.Our IED, IET and IMechE accredited Product Design Engineering courses bring together detailed and versatile product design skills with an in-depth knowledge of manufacturing processes and technologies. By combining a thorough design education with a sound engineering base, our graduates are ideally placed to conceive and develop innovative designs and turn them into profitable products.
