Product Design at University of Chester - UCAS

Course summary

Our creative and business-focused course gives you the freedom to explore the endless possibilities of design and equips you with the skills for industry, enabling you to develop innovative products that make a difference. This course looks to the future, so you will learn about rapidly developing design processes, emerging new materials and cutting-edge technologies. Through industry-led briefs you will consider the environmental, social and economic concerns of today and propose solutions for our changing world. Product Design at Chester is a hands-on experience with a high level of one-to-one contact time and technical support. We place importance on human-centred design thinking, idea generation and experimentation with a deliberate balance between the physical and digital worlds. We encourage a playful approach to materials to produce imaginative design solutions that are commercially viable. Our friendly, creative community provides support and treats you as an individual. Our staff come from the design industry and have excellent links with commercial partners. This enables us to set live briefs so that students work alongside design professionals and have a path to graduate design jobs. You will acquire the confidence to push the boundaries and explore the entrepreneurial possibilities of your ideas within the creative economy. Our industry standard CAD facilities and 3D printing suite complement the traditional workshops, which are supported by skilled technical staff for hands-on development and experimentation.
