Course summary

This advanced Product Design course is perfect for professional practitioners and recent graduates. It gives you the opportunity to pursue the development of ideas and advance your craft for a sustained period of time.

Product design is all about the processes involved in taking a product that we may use in everyday life from concept to design to the market place.

On this course you’ll develop your skills as an effective and successful product designer, assisted by working on live briefs with real deadlines in a supportive environment. You’ll explore problem-solving skills and the impact of material selection and manufacturing processes.

We’ll encourage you to identify an area of interest that you’d like to explore in depth throughout the course – so you could look to advance your ‘hard skills’ in areas such as modelling, new product development, styling and product graphics. Or you could opt to focus more on the ‘soft skills’ of branding, user interface design, trend spotting and forecasting.

Future careers

Our graduates work in a wide variety of roles, from design manager to multimedia developer, design engineer to graphic designer.

Many have gone on to enjoy successful careers as owners of their own design and advertising agencies, freelancers or professionals working in the fields of communications, marketing and digital.
