MEng in Product Design Engineering

Product design engineers take basic ideas and turn them into fully-functioning products.

This course is designed to help you develop the creative engineering skills necessary to develop products, which not only do what they're intended for, but also look good and offer value for money.

You’ll develop skills in ergonomics, aesthetics and graphic communications alongside those in engineering materials and manufacturing.

Our courses have common content in Years 1 and 2 which means you can transfer between courses until the end of Year 2.

What you’ll study

In addition to the core classes, you can choose from a wide range of elective subjects.

Years 1 & 2

You’ll study the basics of a variety of engineering disciplines, materials, mathematics, design principles and production and management.

Years 3, 4 & 5

You’ll focus upon specialised design topics such as industrial design, mechatronics and computer-aided design (CAD).

You can also develop your own interests through a wide range of optional classes.

Study abroad
