University of Nottingham has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
Our three-year BEng course equips you for a career in product design, industrial design or in the product development sector and has been developed to address the specific needs of industry to give its graduates the best possible chance of obtaining the career they want. The degree provides a firm understanding of design and the aesthetic and analytical approaches in developing new products.
The first year offers a broad foundation in engineering science and design, manufacturing processes, material selection and mathematics. Example modules include Creative Techniques in Design, Industrial Design and Dynamics of Mechanical Systems. In the second year, you will develop your design skills and commercial awareness and work on a group design project. Example modules include Computer Modelling Systems, Design Visualisation Techniques and the Second Year Group Design Project. In the third year you will continue to develop design skills through project work, including a major design project in the final semester.
