Students following the course, explore product design in its widest sense, through coursework projects and theoretical knowledge. Subjects covered during the product design coursework include advertising, packaging, print technology, technical illustration, orthographic and other drawing methods. The use of industry computer graphics packages and CAD software is included in the course, alongside more traditional skills such as rendering, marker pen work and presentation. 3D modelling is integrated with 2D graphic skills. Integral to the course is the design process. Students are encouraged to become independent learners and will gain an understanding of, and simulate the work of professional designers in their project work.
