Design stimulates the development of an enquiring, analytical and creative approach, and progresses enterprising and entrepreneurial capabilities. It encourages the acquisition of independent judgement and critical self-awareness. Students normally pursue a programme of staged development progressing to increasingly independent and personally-focused learning during the course.
The BSc Product Design degree course at Bangor University‘s Design and Technology Centre is a diverse design course which focuses on a wide range of design sectors as well as developing your professional skills. We are the only UK University to offer a Product Design degree course with three separate industrial work placements which will allow you to experience a diverse range of working environments, projects and companies.
Throughout your three years at Bangor University you will participate in a wide range of modules, exploring various aspects of design from jewellery to textiles to electronics to manufacture methods as well as learning and implementing new professional skills and expertise. On top of this other design skills are developed including Computer Aided Design and Manufacture and the Adobe Creative Suite. Our third year final project allows you to choose a project of your choice to develop from your initial idea and problem identification through to manufacturing a fully functioning prototype, as well as a business plan which would allow you to theoretically take your project to market. Our degree allows you to graduate with a diverse range of skills and experiences which you will be able to offer future employers.
