What will I study?

How do good ideas become marketable products? Product design is about the creation of new items that people want to buy. It includes function and appearance, and needs the balance of technology and creativity for its success.

Through studying this subject you will gain a thorough understanding of the processes involved in turning ideas into attractive and functional products. You will develop your creativity and technical expertise and be at the forefront of the next generation of ideas, concepts and prototypes.

On our course you will learn the skills, techniques and processes necessary to turn your ideas into real, marketable products.
