We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Industrial/Product design equip postgraduates with the skills to design industrial and consumer products which meet aesthetic, functional and commercials requirements.
Taught MA and MSc courses are typical for the field, though research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes may also be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Art or Design Technology.
Courses in this field are often interdisciplinary, examining conceptual approaches and techniques across topics such as aesthetics, technological innovation in product design, and cultural shifts.
For example, you may explore how consumer behaviours impact the process of human-centred design. Or, you might explore how multi-platform advertising affects branding and corporate identity for manufacturers.
You will combine this theory with training in a range of applied techniques including 3D modelling, digital image production and illustrative techniques. Training in business philosophy such as trend spotting and forecasting is also a key component.
Depending on your interests, your career may involve designing consumer products such as automotive commodities, furniture, gaming products, electronics and even merchandising. You could also explore roles in public services or charitable organisations.
