Product Design Engineering

THE DESIGN AND MANUFACTURE OF INNOVATIVE TECHNICAL PRODUCTS

The School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Queen's University Belfast offers an advanced degree in Product Design Engineering, as well as both Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering. These undergraduate degrees - measured by the highest standards and taught by enthusiastic staff with world-leading reputations in research, teaching and innovation - will inspire you to become the best you can be once you graduate and enter the professional world.

The main objective of our Product Design Engineering BEng / MEng degree is to produce graduates with a broad and balanced set of skills and attributes required for the design and manufacture of innovative technical products. It is a variant of the Mechanical Engineering degree, which after first year, focuses on:

  • Design Processes Methodology
  • Materials
  • Manufacturing

BENG / MENG PRODUCT DESIGN ENGINEERING

Both the BEng and MEng Product Design Engineering degrees are accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IME).

The majority of graduates are working in manufacturing companies or design consultancies in the UK or Ireland. Their broad skill set and experience has enabled them to fit in equally well in small and dynamic companies as within the multidisciplinary design departments of larger organisations.
