Sustainable Product Design

This is a course that teaches how design is a powerful tool for change and can be ethical and profitable at the same time. Innovation comes from understanding the real needs of people, so we focus on those needs, teaching leading-edge design methods. You'll experience the use of design probes and visioning, learning to deliver your design solutions using 3D computer-aided design (CAD) and digital manufacturing, in one of the most advanced design centres in higher education. You'll explore issues of the future in a holistic way and will be equipped with the professional skills to communicate your ideas within an industry that has a growing appetite for designers with vision and practical solutions. You'll master 3D design processes from conception to production by developing your research, drawing, computer, making and presentation skills. We run live projects with local and national organisation who act as clients. You'll also be encouraged to develop your own business and enterprise ideas that explore creativity as a powerful force for change. BA(Hons) Sustainable Product Design has an excellent employment route. Our career planning and business skills sessions will prepare you for the professional world of design as a designer-maker or product designer.
