Product Placement

Bucks New University is offering a new interior product design degree from September 2015.


Product design has been part of the portfolio of design courses taught at Bucks for a number of years. This new pathway has been designed to allow students to focus their creativity into a dynamic field of design. It offers many commercial opportunities for talented graduates seeking ways to get their name and work into the marketplace.??



Using an interesting variety of live client projects and national and international design competitions as briefs, students will use a range of industry standard 3D CAD, CAD/CAM and rapid prototyping systems, and some fantastic workshop facilities to produce 3D models, fully working prototypes, computer models, animations and simulations to demonstrate design solutions. ??


Creative aspects of design are explored through design-and-make projects using a variety of materials and techniques. The studio-based education will be complimented by using a range of workshop facilities which will help students’ visualise and manufacture their designs, which can then be fed into design projects in different mediums. ??


This pathway will focus on small household products and the environment in which it appears. Designed artifacts will cover a range of products for interior environments using materials from ceramics through wood, metal, plastics and textiles. Students will also engage in collaborations across the university, which will involve clients from related industries and sponsors. Opportunities for study trips, tours and visits both at home and abroad are part of the curriculum.??



The knowledge students gain on this new pathway will open up fulfilling career opportunities working in design or applying your problem-solving skills in other fields. It will provide you with a technical product and interior design education that combines artistic creative design with an academic knowledge of materials, manufacturing processes, structure, and space orientation.??


Bucks New University’s convenient location to the west of London and south of Oxford places them at the centre of the creative economy.??
