most uni's offer product or industrial design in a BA never both. I was just curious if they are pretty similar and whether the courses are counted as equal in the employers eyes.

I don't actually do any of these courses, but I have applied and got an offer for industrial design.
Industrial design mostly focuses on the aesthetics and form of the product whereas product design looks at how a product functions so, how it's built from the inside out
I hope that helps !

Hey ImoHac,

Allow me to elaborate on what MalmoX has said. Product Design covers on what Industrial design has but in more depth.
So industrial design focuses on the concepts, aesthetics and form, manufacturing drawings and redesign for manufacturing operations.

Product design focuses on everything industrial design covers and research, product prototypes, user focused and interaction with users.(We focus on user consumers, their needs, marketing aspects and we work with users to make our product whereas industrial design is more focus on the engineering side of products.)

Are you planning on studying either one of these courses?
If you are and you're in London, you can check out Ravensbourne.
We do a Product Design course that might interest you

Hope this helps you understand it more in depth.

hey sorry for the late reply,
yeah i was considering applying for an industrial design course at loughborough, brunel, Edinburgh and falmouth. As i am taking the A levels Art, DT and geog i cant go for the BSc. i just wanted to know the difference if one was more highly sort after compared to the other, i was reading the difference between the product and industrial design courses at loughborough and there doesn't seem to much difference other than the product design course has more maths but i guess that in my favor.
ill take a look at ravensbourne thank you!
