Our Courses:  

Every year we select graduates to showcase their work at the New Designers exhibition in London. It’s a melting pot of talent that’s sponsored by leading manufacturers such as Dyson and Audi, and it’s an excellent opportunity to network and make vital industry contacts.

Our BSc (Hons) Product Design Engineering has its emphasis on design for mass production and design engineering. It’s ideal if you’re a creative thinker with a real interest in the technical design of products, particularly how industry manufactures them and how they actually work.

The BA (Hons) Product Design focuses on industrial design and the relationship between people and products. This is an exciting subject area – it’s where art meets science in the quest to make better, more attractive products that people want.
