Introduction

*Please note that this course will not run in 2014/15

The MSc Product Design programme will educate students in a global context on how to approach the design of products in the rapidly changing technological, economic and social landscape.

Our philosophy is simple, we aim to educate students to:

  • make products that work socially, through deep understanding of people and society;
  • work technically, through embedding cutting-edge technology into our products; and
  • work economically, through working closely with global industries to ensure a market readiness and entrepreneurship at the highest level.

The Product Design programme at the University of Dundee has established a world-class reputation across industry, research and teaching. We have strong connections to the UK and global design economy – with tutors running successful design consultancies that operate on a global scale. 

Our research has attracted a number of substantial grant awards including a £1.1m UK government award to explore new ways to connect disadvantaged communities to the digital economy; a five year industry PhD programme in self-service funded by the financial solutions company NCR; and a Microsoft Research PhD Scholarship to investigate digital navigation.

Our staff exhibit their work worldwide, with products housed in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
