3rd in the UK and 1st in Wales for Design & Crafts (Guardian League table 2022)
If you’re reading this you’re someone who wants to make a difference to the people and world around you. The creative nature of product design marries lateral thinking with real world applications. Designers create and change the world; here at UWTSD we aim to give you the tools to do so. We’re people-centric and so is our discipline; product design starts and finishes with people, and our mission is to allow you to understand what type of designer you are and create projects around your interests.
The ethos of the course has two central themes, Thinking and Doing. As educators we hope to inspire through the considerations of all aspects, giving you the tools to analytically approach a problem and consider a multitude of solutions through your designs. Through creative skills and application we allow you to develop a vast skillset through taught and self-driven methodologies that will enable the realisation of your concepts from start to finish, all of which are highly desired within the product design industry.
During the course we engage with our industrial contacts, ensuring that what we teach, and subsequently the skills you acquire, are contemporary and relevant within the current industrial landscape.
We do not require previous portfolio work as a necessity, we simply ask that you are a passionate creative, and have a burning desire to improve. With these in place, we can help you become a designer that makes a real world impact.
