Description

Why choose Product Design? Everyone relies on products throughout each day, yet most people take them for granted without considering the way in which they work or how they have been produced. Studying Product Design allows a deeper understanding of how products are designed and manufactured to meet individual needs and for the population as a whole. Whilst the style of products is important.

AS/A Level Product Design

Why choose Product Design?
Everyone relies on products throughout each day, yet most people take them for granted without considering the way in which they work or how they have been produced. Studying Product Design allows a deeper understanding of how products are designed and manufactured to meet individual needs and for the population as a whole. Whilst the style of products is important, an equal emphasis is placed on the technologies and manufacturing processes involved in producing successful products.

Resources and Facilities
A well-equipped multi-media workshop
A design room equipped with computers and advanced CAD software
CNC CAM machine

Teaching and Learning Styles
Products are designed, modelled and manufactured to a high standard
A wide range of theory topics are covered to enable effective design to take place
Many topics are covered by a combination of class work, practical experiments and distance learning

Extra-Curricular Activities

We expect students to participate in museum/gallery visits as well as the possibility of work experience in a relevant field.

Assessment
Four units are taken, two at AS level and two at A2 level in Product Analysis, Product Development (coursework) and Theory.

Progression Opportunities
Many students go on to study a degree course in a related field such as Product Design, Architecture or Engineering. For the former, studying Product Design in conjunction with an art subject at AS/A2 level; for the latter studying Maths and Physics would be an advantage.
