The Design for Industry BA (Hons) course at Northumbria University teaches students to create designs that tackle current and future challenges.

Over more than four decades, the course has produced some of the most influential and celebrated designers operating in product design today.

The course will give you opportunities to follow in their footsteps and become the next generation of design talent.

Design for Industry is a product design course that is known for its holistic approach to design challenges.

While focused on the design of physical products, our approach embraces wider disciplines, including experience and digital design, so students leave us with a skillset suited to current design careers.

You will learn to create design concepts that are commercially viable, addressing user needs and behaviours. At the same time, we promote a responsible approach to design, meaning that you will always consider the social and environmental impacts of your design decisions.

Over its history, the course has produced generational design talents – including Apple's senior vice president Sir Jonathan Ive, Trunkie founder Rob Law MBE, and IDEO chief executive Tim Brown – but we continue to produce graduates who will shape the future of design.

Applications to this course have now closed.
