Product design engineers have key skills within an engineering team to help transform ideas into practical solutions, that can be trialled and tested to provide a reliable product, method or process. You will learn to solve complex problems, research, develop and prototype your ideas to produce engineered working solutions that have manufacturing and commercial potential. You will be shown how to use key design methods enabling you to create functional and aesthetically pleasing solutions. In short you will understand the role of both engineer and designer. Our degree has been designed in collaboration with industry and you’ll have excellent opportunities to develop professional engineering practice and work with a range of employers. You are also able to take control of your study focus, so if you have an innovative mind and flair for problem-solving, this course is for you. Your creativity may provide a solution that a company needs to expand their market reach and connect with new users. For instance, you may design products which are easier for people with limited strength or disabilities to use. You will gain key employability skills and be encouraged to take up placements, helping you to go straight into employment upon completion of your studies. You’ll use the pioneering CDIO (Conceive, Design, Implement, Operate) approach to problem solve product design engineering issues. The CDIO approach is an international engineering education model, developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). It allows you to learn in a practical, hands-on way to find creative, evaluated solutions to industry related engineering challenges. We are one of only a handful of universities in the UK to offer CDIO. On completion of this degree, you could go on to work in a wide range of industries from Consumer products, Transport, Aerospace, Health or telecom & communication sectors. If you aspire to become a leader/manager of a team that researches and designs innovative product solutions to complex problems, this BEng is for you.
