Course summary

The MSc in Product Design Engineering is collaboratively delivered between GSA's PDE department and James Watt School of Engineering at the University of Glasgow, with curriculum delivery being equally split between the two institutions. There are increasing pressures, from both existing and emerging world marketplaces, for products which not only respond to the needs of function, user and society, but which can be brought to market ever more rapidly through state-of-the-art development and manufacturing processes. Industries which develop, manufacture and market today's products need high-calibre graduates equipped to handle these processes with management skill and creative drive, and this programme develops graduates with these skills.
