Product Design Engineering encapsulates the creative and the technical. It is a combination of two traditionally separate fields, each with its own strength. Now in its 20th year of operation our course is still unique in Australia being run jointly by Swinburne’s Schools of Design and Engineering. As such we can take advantage of the skills and knowledge of two very different disciplines. Our students are trained in Industrial Design and Mechanical Engineering leveraging engineering science, creativity and user needs. A Product Design Engineer graduates with the capacity to tackle challenging problems, to design, innovate, and develop high quality competitive products that deliver real-world value.
Learning the ability to tie both creative and analytical thinking via projects that include hands on work. It has been great to start projects with total blue sky thinking but still work towards a manufacturable, feasible product.
