Industrial Design: Product & Transport (with a Placement Year) - Staffordshire University

Innovative and creative, this exciting course with two distinct pathways will allow you to explore the world of Product Design or Transport Design. In our dedicated studio we will encourage you to create products or vehicles that focus on the user experience, and explore opportunities for new technology and smart materials. If you want a career designing anything from toys, lighting and furniture, to household goods and consumer technology, our Product Design pathway could open up a whole world of career opportunities. Likewise, our Transport Design pathway is perfect if you want to focus on concepts for autonomous vehicles, supercars, sustainable mass-transit and motorcycles. The course is designed to mirror industry practice with students working alongside companies on live projects, often resulting in placement opportunities. Our students work with companies such as JCB, Jaguar Land Rover, Westbridge Furniture, Bombardier, Halfords, Michelin, and Evoke Creative, whose client list includes McDonalds, Google and JD Sports. Our teaching staff are highly experienced and our students also benefit from weekly visits by associate lecturers. They share their inside knowledge of working as designers in what is an ever-changing industry. Add consultancy visits to London and New York and, whether you plan to work in the product or transport industry, or as an independent consultant, we’ll provide ample opportunities for you to acquire the skills necessary for success. Students opting for the Placement Year route spend a year working in industry between their second and third years. On successful completion of study, we will issue the following award: BA (Hons) Industrial Design: Product & Transport (Product) or BA (Hons) Industrial Design: Product & Transport (Transport)
