Course summary

This exciting new programme combines the knowledge of design principles, ergonomics, engineering science and manufacturing processes to create multi-functional solutions and products. A career in product design engineering or industrial design will mean you conduct necessary tests to determine whether a product meets all the customer requirements. By the time you graduate, you will be able to merge your knowledge of engineering reinforced design education and analytical skillset with a sound manufacturing base, enabling you to conceive and develop innovative designs and turn them into manufacturing reality, innovative products and solutions, and profitable businesses. The programme will also offer to all students an optional placement year that will enable you to experience the real world and effectively connect your knowledge gained at UEL with it.

Assessment method

Your progress is continually assessed by means of various methods, for example, through personal and group tutorials and via presentations when work is appraised by a panel of teaching staff and by a peer group of students. Through these methods, as well as while carrying out activities in the workshop and laboratory, you will receive formative feedback on a regular basis. This advice is offered to assist the learning process and improve the quality of work before final hand-in. The modules are assessed differently, some through assignment and exam, others through assignment alone. Design modules require a series of presentations for each project throughout the course. You will be asked to present your work to your colleagues and teachers highlighting details relating to your primary research, to concept developments, and to the fabrication of design(s), as well as a concluding pitch of your chosen final design. You will also develop a creative portfolio of work. Feedback is provided within 15 working days in line with UEL's assessment and feedback policy.

Entry requirements

Qualification requirements

For detailed information on entry requirements for our courses, please see the individual course pages. We consider a range of UK and worldwide qualifications at the appropriate level and also take relevant work experience into account when considering an application. Many courses have a Foundation Year option for those students whose qualifications do not meet the BA or BSc entry requirements. Applicants should have, or be working towards, grade C in GCSE English and Mathematics (or equivalent Level 2 qualification such as Functional Skills Level 2 in English and Mathematics or Key Skills Level 2 in Application of Number and Communication) Entry requirements are intended only as a guide for applicants. They are not a guarantee of an offer, nor of the conditions that may apply. When making a decision on your academic suitability, we will make an assessment of you as an individual and will use information other than qualifications; which may include predicted grades, performance at Level 2, relevant work experience, previous study at degree level, personal statement, references and any portfolio, written test or interview, to make our decision. If you have any questions, please contact a member of our Applicant Relations Team from Monday to Friday (9am–5pm) on +44 (0) 20 8223 3333 or email [email protected]
