This course combines technology with art and design. You will cover a range of subjects from manufacturing and engineering concepts, to illustration, computer aided illustration and design techniques. WHY STUDY THIS COURSE? This course is accredited by the Institute of Engineering Designers (IED) and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), which means that it meets all the academic requirements for you to register as an Incorporated Engineer (IEng). We pay Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) student membership fees for all of our students. MORE ABOUT THIS COURSE: Our sophisticated design software, rapid prototyping and 3D printing facilities will prepare you for the fast moving world of design, visualisation and product development. WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR? This course is for anyone creative and ideas-driven who would like to use technology to turn their ideas into reality. SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE GAINED: We will equip you with the knowledge and skills you need to create effective and innovative products for manufacture. Starting at the drawing board, you will be taken through modern workshop activities, mastering mechanical engineering technology and science involving state-of-the-art CAD/CAM systems and rapid manufacture facilities. You can also apply to do an optional year-long placement in industry. AFTER THE COURSE: In our high tech world there is still a shortage of people who are skilled in the use of CAD software. Computer aided product designers are the key to success and profit, especially in mass domestic markets. As a result, getting yourself a well-paid job at the end of this course is more attainable than most.
