Product Design (with an industrial placement year) - University of Sussex

**About the course** At Sussex, you'll be taught by design experts with industry experience combining art, science and technology. You'll learn to design products that satisfy the needs and behaviours of people and society. From day one, you'll be working with industry professionals on live creative briefs, and you'll have opportunities to commercialise your products. We ground you in design thinking so you can develop informed solutions and produce them through prototyping and manufacturing models. You'll also consider how your products may be recycled or re-purposed at the end of their life - designing for the circular economy - a skill desired by the industry. Our teaching prepares you for success: our students have won awards from design leaders such as LEGO and Hasbro. They've also taken their own designs to market through the Sussex Innovation Centre. This course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering Designers. **About Sussex** Sussex graduates change the world. Our students become the leaders of the future, making discoveries, improving lives and changing things for the better. Study with us to join a welcoming and inspiring community of staff and students from more than 140 countries. **Location** We shape the world from a fantastic campus on the UK’s beautiful south coast. We are the only UK university surrounded by a national park, so you can step off campus to explore the hills and woodlands of the South Downs. The vibrant, colourful and creative seaside city of Brighton & Hove is just nine minutes away. With Brighton voted the happiest city in England for students, (Student Living Survey, Sodexo, 2018) there can be few better places to study.
