Innovation and creativity in almost all stages of design and production are critical to the success of many products and multimedia technology plays an increasingly important role in enabling companies to compete globally.
The Product Design Engineering degree gives you the opportunity to test your creativity and develop technical skills in using the latest CAD technology so that you will be able to take ideas from product conception, design and analysis, right through to production.
This is a hands-on course in which you will have access to CAD suites loaded with the latest 3D visualisation software, a purpose-built creative design studio, an advanced manufacturing laboratory and modern engineering laboratories.
The course has been developed in partnership with industry experts so that it is relevant to the needs of employers and you will be encouraged to take the year-long work placement option to get a taste of what it's really like to work in the design industry.

Please see the programme specification document for further details on this course.
All modules are assessed by coursework and exams.
For many of the design and enterprise modules, you may be expected to work in teams and produce exemplar work for your design portfolio.
Your tutors will give prompt and constructive feedback via Canvas (our virtual learning environment), face-to-face or in writing. This will help you to identify your strengths as well as the areas where you may need to put in more work.
