Subject

Product design

This degree is uniquely designed to enable you to develop the skills for pathways into Design Engineering. A dual approach of theory and practical is taken in the delivery of the modules so that you will build both academic and practical problem solving to provide an engaging student focused experience.
You will be taught in small, interactive seminar groups, with interdisciplinary projects in every year of the course, allowing you to put your learning immediately into practice. You will work in collaboration with students studying mechanical and electrical engineering, alongside where possible live client based industrial projects.
This course is ideal for those who are interested in a practical and technical approach to Design and Engineering. This BEng enhances the current Engineering delivery and offers future options that engineering students can decide to undertake more design orientated approaches with insight to human factors and CAD/ digital applications.
You will focus on embedding the various design strategies that include technical, digital and practical skills required for employment in Design Engineering. Where possible competition or live projects will be incorporated into the modules to offer student real industrial scenarios. The outcomes range from digital portfolio’s to fully realised projects. Each developing skills important for employability.
