Course name : BA (Hons) Product Design
At the University of Edinburgh, students gain a broad perspective of Product Design. They approach contemporary themes and work through design briefs that range from electronic artefacts that mediate data transactions, human interactions and new economic models, to new ways of working with craft materials and both traditional and novel modes of fabrication. Our small cohorts allow for tailored teaching and learning where students are encouraged to follow their own interests and construct a unique design profile. Through the programme, students are invited to take risks, to work with others and carry out iterative processes to design artefacts and systems that question existing ways of doing things, in line with the tradition of innovation and cutting-edge research and practice that has characterised the University of Edinburgh for centuries.
