Why Glasgow

·This exciting programme will enable you to benefit from the combined resources and complementary expertise of staff of two top ranking Scottish institutions, University of Glasgow and Glasgow School of Art.

·Studio-based, student-centered learning based around design project activities. Students have access to state-of-the-art product design engineering prototyping and manufacturing processes in the PDE workshops at GSA and University of Glasgow.

·There are increasing pressures, from both existing and emerging world marketplaces, for products which not only respond to the needs of function, user and society, but which can be brought to market ever more rapidly through state-of-the-art development and manufacturing processes. Industries which develop, manufacture and market today's products need high-caliber graduates equipped to handle these processes with management skill and creative drive, and this programme develops graduates with these skills.

·The studio programme explores cultural, management, perceptual, process and psychological issues, offering a curriculum relevant to the needs of industry and an understanding of the role of the design engineer in society.

·The University of Glasgows School of Engineering has been delivering engineering education and research for more than 150 years and is the oldest School of Engineering in the UK.

Background and Aims

The MSc in Product Design Engineering aims to:

·Offer each individual student the opportunity to critically develop his or her own work in the context of a rigorous but supportive intellectual climate;

·Acquire key skills in the areas of user-centred design, product design, mechanical engineering, and electronic and electrical engineering;

·Encourage students to identify and explore key contextual issues relevant to their practice;

·Develop students' awareness and knowledge base in design philosophy, theory, practice and research in the context of innovative forms of design;

·Enable students to achieve the highest possible standards in their work, so that graduates have the confidence, maturity and intellectual and interpersonal skills necessary to function successfully in the design engineering field;

·Equip students with the highly developed intellectual, practical and interpersonal skills deemed necessary for their career.

Graduates destinations should expect to follow a similar pattern to our integrated masters programe which include Apple Computers (USA), BAESystems, Cambridge Consultants, Dyson, Hoover-Candy, JCB, Nokia, Philips, Polaroid, Schlumberger and Terex. Graduates could also establish their own companies.
