Product Design

This course is an innovative collaboration between Manchester School of Art, the University's Faculty of Science and Engineering, and Business School. It brings together students from creative and manufacturing backgrounds to study on projects that challenge and develop personal philosophies within product design, and explore the creative use of materials and processes from hand making to digital production. In support of the project work, students develop advanced skills in contemporary digital design and manufacturing, embracing the opportunities they offer product designers. Finally, students contextualise their design ambitions within a business unit that develops project planning and management skills, raises understanding of markets and marketing opportunities, and highlights financial factors that impact on product design and production within commercial environments.
