Our industrial design courses introduce you to the theory and history of innovative and sustainable products, and will help you to understand the strategic thinking behind creating  designs that will stand the test of time.

You’ll learn about professional practice, design psychology, consumer knowledge, applied research and sustainability to get inside the mind of your customer. 

After graduating  from our product design course, you’ll have gained key  skills, such as sketching, computer design and manufacturing, which you can use to create innovative new products and effective product packaging design. 

From brief through to launch, you’ll have more than just the skills to create a product — you’ll have the knowledge and strategic thinking to come up with solutions your clients could never dream of.
