Product Design Engineering

Developing consumer goods requires a foundation in industry technology and skills.

We understand product design is not only crucial to customer satisfaction, but also to the success of entire organisations. That’s why we offer product design engineering courses at Swinburne.

Product design engineering courses are an opportunity to explore the design and development of innovative, sustainable products. A specialisation in product design engineering provides the foundation knowledge and skills needed to create products, from client brief to end product. You’ll gain expertise in technology, production methods and materials relevant to the industry. Practical workshops and industry projects are additional hands-on experiences we provide: It’s just a matter of choosing the course that suits the future you can picture.

By the time you graduate, you’ll have the confidence and skills to apply your knowledge to the workplace. Future careers can be found within industries that specialise in the design, development and manufacture of domestic products.
