About the course
Brunel’s Design degrees are some of the most renowned and respected in Europe and our students and graduates have won many national and international design awards.
This BSc degree course in Product Design shares all its first and second year modules with BSc Product Design Engineering, and both contain a balanced blend of creative and technical subjects where mechanics and electronics are taught at a theoretical level.
The Product Design programme is focused on developing your commercial awareness, technical skills and ability to innovate. The course has a technical emphasis, meaning students can develop products that both look good and work well.
The degree also emphasises aesthetic awareness and understanding of market trends. All modules on the course have creative and project based working including graphic design, human factors and environmentally sensitive design.
The course suits pragmatic problem solvers who combine their numeracy with the creative motivation to underpin exciting, commercially viable projects with a deep functional and manufacturing understanding.

Design at Brunel University has evolved to meet the needs of industry worldwide, by teaching highly motivated students, through in-depth professional studies, to become imaginative yet practical professional designers.
The Product Design programme aims to develop versatile designers with a sound knowledge and broad understanding of the technological, manufacturing and creative aspects of design, principally focused on industrially-manufactured products.
Graduates will have significant engineering understanding and will be able to take on key roles encompassing all aspects of the design process, as well as being prepared for further research-based studies.
We believe that good design is the combination of commercial awareness with creative and inspirational thought validated by sound technological reasoning, defined through the design process. We produce communicators who are at ease working with members of engineering, design and marketing teams and appreciating their individual needs, and capable of contributing to the total design process.
