Product Design at University of Dundee - UCAS

Course summary

Product Designers need to be able to research, imagine new ideas and bring them to life through sketching, prototyping and visualisation. You will learn about the whole design process - research methods, sketching, prototyping, materials, manufacturing, sustainability, 3D modelling, electronics and how to program them. You’ll use people-centred design methods to find out what people want, and to design great products with and for them. You will learn about existing and emerging digital technologies and the role they play in transforming people's everyday lives. You’ll gain the skills to produce resolved working prototypes with integrated technology. Our aim is to help you to develop your own identity as a designer. With wide ranging staff expertise and outstanding facilities, we can encourage a remarkably varied range of interests and approaches in a supportive art school environment. You will have access to our world-class specialist workshops and the opportunity to explore processes such as ceramics, metalwork, casting, woodworking, laser cutting, 3D printing and CNC machining. You will work one-to-one and in small groups, with experienced tutors and expert workshop staff who will support you from your very first idea to finished product. With its ever-growing creative reputation and boosted by its UNESCO City of Design status, Dundee is a great place to study Product Design. You will have the opportunity to work with designers from industry as well as have the chance to enter national competitions. You will have the opportunity to take part in study visits and exchanges in third year. In recent years our students have had opportunities to study in Australia, Canada, Germany, New Zealand and Finland. Our graduates have gone on to work for organisations such as the BBC, Dyson, Google, Lego, Microsoft, Mountain Equipment, Superflux and Unilever. In the final year you will have the opportunity to exhibit your work at the Degree Show. Previous final year projects can be viewed online as part of our graduate showcase.
