Overview

The MSc Product Design at the University of Dundee is an ideal launch pad if you want to enter the exciting world of creative technology. You'll examine the ways digital technologies are changing the way we live our lives, exploring big data and looking at the relationship between products, the internet and the cloud.

You’ll learn how to develop socially relevant design responses to address these real world issues, challenging and creating conversations about the ways in which people and society interact with technologies.

This course is research-driven and interdisciplinary and you will be taught modules in both design and technology. You will collaborate with research scholars, and groups within the University, as well as with external organisations and creative practitioners.

Through this, you’ll develop new perspectives and frameworks on problem-solving, prototyping, design thinking, and making.

You’ll learn how to make highly resolved product prototypes, learning the tools and techniques for embedding technology into your products. You’ll also have access to the world class facilities Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design has to offer, which include:

  • studio space
