I was looking at the graduate salary ranking and engineering was higher than creative arts and design so I was wondering which one. I know there are lot of threads of pde vs mech eng but they didnt really help. Is product design engineering more similar to product design or mech eng because there arent many jobs for pd. Also, what type of jobs and I was looking at job adverts and all the product design engineering jobs wanted a mechanical engineering degree so is it even worth it or would they also accept pde as its under the umbrella? Thanks so much if you take the time to reply.

Hi, Meng?
Oh good point

tbh i would say it is a spectrum, if you had art at one end and engineering at the other Ba would be nearer to the art end, Bsc would be somwhere in the middle of the spectrum but closer to engineering and Meng would be close to the engineering side

Yes, the manufacturing side of the industry.
But Doonesbury could give you a greater insight!

Hello I’m just finishing my Master’s degree in Product Design (PD) and have had this question a lot of times.

It is a tough question to answer and may not be as simple as your qualification, but your portfolio and how your university course was structured.

From personal experience I took a course in PD and chose in my final year to end up with a BA. In no way does it mean I will be limited in jobs as I still have the exact same technical knowledge as those who end up with a BSc. (However, this is course and university dependant).

You will also find that university courses are named differently even though they have the same content-which makes the whole thing even more confusing.

In terms of job hunting, if you are looking for a technical role there is no reason why you cannot apply for the role with a Product Design degree as long as you can demonstrate to them you have the technical capabilities. From personal experience I can vouch for this.



Does this help at all? What sort of jobs have you been looking at?

Thanks for the reply, it is helpful but how is product design different from product design engineering? Ive been looking at design engineering jobs which required mech eng degrees, product design jobs that reqd a BSc im product design and afew industrial engineering jobs aswell. In the product design jobs they mentioned computer programming which my course at notts doesnt include
