  • Objectives
    The role of Product Designer is being increasingly recognised as a vital factor in the successful development of all manufactured products. This course provides a base in business management as well as the underpinning product design modules for science and engineering graduates. The course aims to provide you with the academic, professional and managerial skills and knowledge required for a successful career in polymer and allied industries. You should come away from the course having acquired the disciplines and technical knowhow necessary to successfully manage and lead a design team and to incorporate social, environmental, legal and ethical issues in your product design.
  • Entry requirements
    An Honours degree or equivalent in a relevant science or engineering subject. Applicants who do not have an Honours degree, but who have significant relevant experience to compensate, will also be considered on an individual basis. Successful applicants normally have some prior study and/or experience of management.

  • Course description
    Course structure
    The Polymer Centre has well equipped polymer laboratories and workshops, and the course contains many opportunities for practical work and pilot-scale production on advanced equipment for polymer processing and testing. The course is therefore both stimulating and challenging and will develop your knowledge, confidence, professional values and attitudes in preparation for a successful career in industry.

    The course covers the principles of management strategy and is applicable to managers and all those with ambitions to move into a managerial position.

    The course consists of five core modules, one optional module and a project.

    Core modules:

    -Design for Manufacture
    -Product Design
    -Managerial Work
    -Strategic Management
    -Research Methods: Theory and Practice

    Optional module from:

    -Material Selection and Design
    -Polymer Materials Development and Design
    -Mould and Die Design
    -Process Design and Simulation
    -Statistical Aspects of Product Design
    -Industrial Practices
    -Project Management

    A project can be on any topic within the range of the course, subject to approval. The Research Methods module will prepare you for the project.

    Assessment is on a continuous basis for most elements of the course but a variety of techniques are employed, for example, assignments, written reports, group and individual projects, case studies, computational analysis, seminars and examination. The project is assessed by a dissertation.

    Career opportunities
    Course members will find employment in industries involved in the design, development and manufacture of products. Managers in production need to have a combination of technical knowledge and managerial skills. In the modern world there are career opportunities for those with a combination of such skills.

    Attendance & duration
    -Full-time: one year (maximum duration six years)
    -Part-time: (one day a week), two to three years
