Overview

Students will study in depth the latest industrial and product design engineering techniques, materials and manufacturing processes, modern information technology, management, business and entrepreneurial practices to develop skills, ability and knowledge processes in threedimensional designing, prototyping and production techniques for a successful career in and around the exciting discipline of designing and developing new products.

The three-year BEng Industrial Design programme brings together the traditional discipline of engineering and the very latest in new product development techniques. The result is a truly modern engineering degree that will provide individuals with an excellent technical and creative grounding for a successful career in and around the exciting discipline of designing and developing new products.

During Year One you will study creativity and design in addition to core engineering subjects including Mechanics of Solids, Thermodynamics and Mechanics of Fluids, Electrical Circuits and Systems and Digital Electronics. Year One also includes a one-week group project as well as a one week team ‘design, build and test’ project in Product Design.

Unique to this programme, final year individual projects are student conceived and based on the development of a commercially viable product. This provides an opportunity to pursue a personal interest.
