Overview

The Product Design programme of London Metropolitan University is one of several postgraduate design courses that co-exist at the School of Art, Architecture and Design, offering rich opportunities for the collaborative multidisciplinary approach that is a feature of the current and future design sector and a requirement for success in the field.

Product Design MA is grounded in the understanding that design is a key driver for change in society and the environment. However, traditional roles in design are increasingly blurred and designers need to be able to negotiate complex and ambiguous problems. The challenges and opportunities for design and designers are being constantly reimagined, as the unpredictability of the future tests our capacity to adapt, invent and apply creative design solutions to emerging needs. Graduates of this course will design products and systems that have not yet been conceptualised.

Knowing that the future is largely shaped by design decisions gives a responsibility to designers to act in a manner that combines experimentation and radical thinking with care. The work of a designer is not, however, limited to ensuring that products are safe and function well.

Where this course can take you

The creative industry in the UK is huge and about half of all those involved in the design sector work in London. Located in the creative hub of the East End, our School of Art, Architecture and Design offers excellent opportunities for students and professionals to showcase cutting-edge design within related industries and venues. Through work placement and live projects, you will create design projects that are commercially and creatively relevant to global consumer markets.

Typical career opportunities include consultant designers, in-house designers in manufacturing companies, bespoke furniture designers, production facility managers/consultants, freelance designers for multinational corporations, industrial and interior designers, and design management.
