At the Product Design (Hons) course from University of Dundee we’re interested in existing and emerging digital technologies and the role they play in transforming people's everyday lives.
We promote a culture of ‘thinking through making’ and teach you techniques to prototype throughout the design process. You will have access to a variety of workshops, and you will work with a range of technologies including electronics, computer aided design, laser cutting, and 3D printing. You will also have a dedicated studio space to work in throughout the year.
Our graduates have gone on to work for organisations such as Dyson, Lego, Nokia, Mountain Equipment, Unilever, and the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design.
We have strong relationships with employers, including high profile organisations like Microsoft. Throughout the course you will build the kind of product design portfolio that employers are looking for.
We develop designers who can explore existing and emerging technologies in a playful way. The students go on to use these technologies as a creative medium throughout the design process. We are particularly interested in digital technology and the role it plays in people’s everyday lives.
We teach modules in both design and technology subjects. You will have technology lectures and labs alongside design lectures and product design studio classes.
This course has a close relationship with our Digital Interaction Design and Interior & Environmental Design courses. Through shared modules, you will learn how to understand and develop digital interactions into products.
In technology modules, assessment is through a mixture of coursework (technical reports), exams, and team practical projects.
In design modules, you will design products, services or interactions, which you will present to the class. You will be expected to demonstrate final outcomes alongside development work (your design process) for assessment.
We will train and encourage you to present in a range of formats in such a way that you are given a good grounding in graphics, media (webpages, blogs, short films), prototyping, and verbal skills.
