About the course

Brunel’s design degrees are some of the most renowned and respected in Europe and our students and graduates have won many prestigious design awards.

This course in Product Design Engineering is for creative thinkers who are also comfortable with mathematics and who enjoy deeper analysis of functional and technical design challenges. The course spans design and engineering, meaning students can develop products that both look good and work well.

This BSc degree course runs in parallel with BSc Product Design and becomes uniquely specialised in the third year. The particular blend of creative and technical subjects prepares students for this final year, in which further in-depth technical and engineering knowledge build to form a unique, technically strong design degree experience.

The final year has a strong technological and engineering focus, and your major project, which represents about 400 hours’ work, is likely to include a functional prototype incorporating mechanics and/or electronics.
