Course Introduction

BA Product Design believes product design solutions should meet the wants and needs of real people. Widely recognised externally as an environment in which rigorous thinking generates creative, commercially relevant work, this course gives you the intellectual, academic and subject'specific skills you need to define your own professional practice. You'll undertake projects in direct contact with relevant industrial contacts and social enterprises including Heinz, Procter and Gamble, Nokia and Alessi. Our lecturers and alumni have been associated with the production of ground'breaking including the first production laptop, the original London Routemaster bus, and the Apple iPhone. We have produced more Royal Designers for Industry in the subject than any other undergraduate course in the world. The course has been recognised for world'class excellence by the Queen's Anniversary Prize for Further and Higher Education 2013. The course is taught at Central Saint Martins, King's Cross.
