Design Technology

Our design technology programme sits at the intersection of art and science, bringing together experts from our Department of Arts and Humanities and our Department of Science and Technology. The combination of design skills and technical skills opens up a range of careers in marketing, sales and advertising, arts crafts and design, broadcast media and performing arts, journalism and publishing, construction, as well as engineering and manufacturing. This course has been designed for the future. We focus on the theories, technologies, and media that inform the production of creative designs of products and services that are innovative, sustainable, and have an impact on communities and people. The programme is structured to enable you to develop your knowledge and skills in line with your talents and interests, and to graduate with a professional profile that reflects the latest industry expectations set by bodies such as the Chartered Society of Designers (CSD). Our unique approach to teaching is based on simulating a real-life studio with all the facilities. You work as part of a team in collaboration with tutors and peers, mirroring the organisation and culture of the design industry at large. At the end of the course, you will be able to design and implement products and services that merge the arts and technology, exploring opportunities in the sectors of product design and innovation, service design, arts and culture, and curation. You can opt to have the award of a BA (Hons) or a BSc (Hons) depending on your choice of modules and project.
