Product Design

Industrial designers create products for the home, workplace and public spaces. If you embark on a career in three-dimensional design, you could find yourself designing a wide range of products, from computers and mobile devices to tableware and bathtubs; from medical equipment to street lighting. 

Our courses embrace the full spectrum of 3D design, including product, furniture and object design. You will develop essential creative skills, knowledge and practices, such as presentation techniques, materials, construction methods, model making and computer aided design. As you learn industry standard practices, you will have access to first class studios, workshops and facilities. Our lecturers will help you build a portfolio of your design work, which is vital for employment in this industry.
