Summary

You will be part of the Industry 4.0 revolution; faster innovation and adoption of industrial digital technologies could be as much as £455 billion for UK manufacturing over the next decade, creating near 175,000 jobs. Industries from a range of sectors, including mechanical engineering design, architectural technology and construction, or product design and fabrication, require a new, innovative, business-savvy and highly skilled professional.

This course invites you to develop your professional expertise by learning, applying and scoping commercialisation opportunities in the fields of digital design, modelling and digital fabrication in high-value industrial sectors. Based in our main campus in Plymouth, you will study in an emerging region for the creative and manufacturing industries. You will benefit from our newly developed facilities for digital fabrication and immersive visualisation addressing challenging problem-solving scenarios in the cognate fields of mechanical engineering, architectural technology, architecture, and product design. With the support of our School of Business, you will additionally scope and propose commercialisation opportunities by developing your business and IP knowledge.
As a result, the programme develops a broad skillset applicable to a range of careers in industry that require both creative thinking, business skills as well as digital and technological competences. Upon graduation you will be able to contribute to the design, creative or manufacturing sectors.

Our multidisciplinary curriculum, developed in partnership between the School of Art, Design and Architecture and the School of Engineering, is tailored to enable your professional interests to develop through project-based work supported by industry partners, academics and researchers. We offer alternative MA and MSc awards for students interested on cross-sectorial professional development, as well as potential continuity towards a research career. The MA award more specifically develops your design skills and utilises design tools, methods and creative approaches to tackle industry challenges, while the MSc award more specifically develops your technological and scientific skills and knowledge, and utilises engineering approaches to tackle industry challenges.

The course offers a part-time route (5 semesters) for students willing to remain working in industry throughout their studies.
