  • Course description
    This course is one of 11 themes within the Faculty of Engineering's multidisciplinary Postgraduate Training Package in Sustainable Engineering. The course allows students to come into contact with those in other engineering courses and thus develop multidisciplinary interests and skills.

    Integrated Product Development (IPD) focuses on the effective integration of all "process-centred" aspects of product development, from the identification of a need to the conception, realisation, operation and disposal of the product.

    The course emphasises IPD within a business environment and provides an insight into the effective use of supporting software technologies. The specialist modules further this 'total' approach to the product development process, including design supply chains, distributed design management and risk management.

    The course gives graduates a thorough grounding in the use and integration of design methods, processes and technology for careers in developing, managing, leading and researching design projects in engineering. Graduates with an understanding of IPD can help reduce time to market, improve the quality of a product, save costs, and provide process improvement.

    IPD is relevant to all types of product development organisations, including small- to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), consultancies, large manufacturing companies and design offices. It enhances the professional ability of graduates and engineers from mechanical, electrical, civil, mechatronic, architectural and chemical disciplines.
