MA Product Design

Course Description


This course looks at theory alongside real-world practice and fuses the best of both in a unique approach to product design. Students are encouraged to take part in debate and analysis to create exciting new concept proposals.

The course challenges perceptions around 'alternative living' to see what else might be possible in a world already full of things. The course will prepare students for professional life in a wide range of product design related roles.

The course is focused around a creative studio hub and provides a supportive environment where students can develop your personal design agendas.

Studio-based sessions are complemented by a virtual learning environment, offering 24/7 online access to the latest information, course documentation and examples of previous student work.
