Course Information and Fees
DIPLOMA IN PRODUCT DESIGN
The course equips students with the knowledge and skills to apply the design process to problems related to mass-produced products, to produce conceptual sketches, technical specifications, rendered images and physical or virtual 3D models to communicate proposed solutions in a professional way. The graduate will be able to participate in debates around current design thinking and movements, based on historical reference and position the results of their work in the business framework that generated the need for the design input.
After qualifying, graduates become product designers with the competence to work independently as designers, or who work for industrial designers as niche skills specialists like CAD operators, model-makers or illustrators. Graduates are also employed as in-house designers for manufacturing companies, or in design-related fields such as furniture design, special effects and props for the film industry.
