About this course

Postgraduate studies in Product Design present an opportunity for students to prepare for the ever-changing consumer market with advanced design, manufacturing, and business analysis skills.

The Master of Product Design (MProdDesign) takes advantage of UC's research expertise in a range of commerce, IT, and engineering fields. The programme provides a mixture of practical work and theory with original supervised research.

UC houses specialised on-campus facilities for students to research, create, test, and market their own products.

Those seeking to learn how to commercialise a product or service idea (design background not required) may want to consider the Master of Product Innovation.
