The Product Design Engineering with a Year in Industry (Hons) programme from University of Liverpool is largely project-based. Students will work on several design engineering projects of increasing complexity. In years one and two, students will study core engineering subjects such as solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, materials, as well as electronics and computer programming. 

The understanding of the fundamental knowledge of engineering science in these subjects underpins the practice of product design engineering. Students will also learn fundamental product design techniques through subjects, such as design communication, human factors, product development and project management. This gives students a broad learning experience and an extended educational spectrum at a comprehensive level, combining the latest product design techniques with wide aspects of engineering.
