The Product Design course from the University of Strathclyde will provide a thorough training in design theories and methods including product aesthetics and human-centred design, and the utilisation of advanced design techniques in digital modelling and physical rapid prototyping of design solutions.
The course will appeal to graduates of courses in industrial/product design or innovation-related courses who wish to influence future thinking and practice design.
During the programme, you'll undertake an individual and group project.
For group projects, you'll have the opportunity to work with fellow students and an industrial client to address a practical problem. You'll gain direct industry experience to add to your CV, develop skills, manage a project through to completion and practice working in a multidisciplinary group preparing you for collaborative work throughout your future career.
With continual advancements in the market place, including customers wanting personalised products, faster turnaround times, globalisation, as well as increasing backings of local businesses, product design continues to evolve and stay at the forefront of our physical and online stores.
