Design Delivered. “From problematic briefs to innovative results, we teach our students the skills they need to design, test and manufacture industry standard solutions. Only at Loughborough Design School is Design Delivered�


A Message from the Dean of Loughborough Design School

Professor Tracy Bhamra

“Welcome to this annual celebration of our final year Industrial Design and Product Design students”.

Loughborough Design School boasts students who demonstrate a wide range of talents – from developing creative and innovative concepts through to the building and evaluating of their design prototypes. Loughborough has become recognised for this high level of creativity and innovation, which has arisen from the unique way we are able to blend design with functional and engineering expertise. Enterprise is also a key part of our School’s activities, providing context and purpose to our student’s work. During their time here students have a number of opportunities to interact with industry collaborators. Many of the final years work with industry partners for their final projects. Additionally, throughout the programmes, our students take part in different industry

led projects, where they work intensively on industrial briefs. Across all of our programmes industrial research commonly informs our teaching practice giving students access to our cutting edge development work. Our programmes have developed over many years and are internationally recognised as fit for purpose in today’s challenging workplace, and lead to a very high proportion of our graduates gaining employment in design. We also offer our students the option of an industrial placement. This adds terrific value to an already renowned programme. Students who have selected this option are denoted in this book by +DPS on their individual page.

Professor Tracy Bhamra

ABOUT THE PROGRAMMES THAT WE OFFER The BA in Industrial Design has a bias towards product innovation through the integration of user needs, aspirations and product appearance. Whilst still retaining a focus on designing great looking products, the BSc in Product Design and Technology also develops capability in the underlying principles on which products operate by studying and applying mechanics, electronics and materials science throughout the course.

I hope you enjoy this showcase of our student’s work and recognise the skill and dedication that it embodies.


Loughborough Design School 2012



Final Year Modules


Final year students undertake a range of modules which enable them to develop their skills in a variety of design disciplines. Loughborough Design School is well known for its Final Year Design Practice module, in which students take a project from conception to the prototype stage. The following pages give a brief insight into the various modules undertaken by students, illustrating some of the outcomes of those modules.


Final Year Module

Final Year Design Practice “This module allows students to take a design idea from the initial research phase right through to a fully defined, prototyped and working final design.�

From user research and concept generation to design for manufacture, CAD, electronics and prototyping, this module is the culmination of all skills gained throughout university studies and work placements. The modules focus is the design and development of a product to meet either a self-generated or 12

company sponsored brief. The initial stages draw on the students’ abilities to empathise with users, utilise new technologies and problem solve to create a range of different solutions. Refining these solutions requires the practical skills of the students in areas such as ergonomics, mechanics and manufacturing

to evaluate concepts for both innovation and feasibility. Detailed design for manufacture is undertaken with consideration of materials, processes and costs. Finally, by applying their skills of model making, students create a range of aesthetic and functional prototypes that can then be used as the basis for user evaluation.

“IDS lets us be creative and really explore the latest technology trends in relation to a professional brief.”

Final Year Module

Industrial Design Studies

The final year IDS module follows briefs set by the Royal Society of Arts (RSA) and gives students the ability to diversify their current skills and explore industry standard briefs. The IDS module is undertaken by all final year BA students, and runs from the beginning of the year and throughout semester one. This years briefs were: • Mobile medicine • The good journey • Tomorrow’s workplace • Something for everyone • Mine for life All the briefs required in-depth primary research, design ideation, development and the production of a final design. At the end of the module, students have the opportunity to submit their work to the RSA competition, and this year two undergraduate students have been short listed.

Final Year Module

Mechanics & Electronics “A great module to show off students’ technical knowledge, it really encourages consideration of feasibility in conjunction with creativity” This module is undertaken by BSc students and is designed to put into practice the skills learnt in the previous two years of study. It brings together skills in both mechanics and electronics in two methods of assessment: a group design analysis & manufacturing project and an individual exam. The group project allowed students to combine their

knowledge of programming, circuit design, mechanical analysis and manufacturing skills to produce a fully automated prototype. In teams of 3 over the period of 12 weeks, students were required to design, analyse, manufacture and evaluate an electromechanical can crushing device to meet individual mechanics and electronics specifications.


Final Year Module

Dissertation “Students undertake an indepth study on a design topic of their choice through primary and secondary research.” This module allows students the scope to extend their knowledge on a design related subject of their choosing. Some students pick topics related to their major project and use the findings to feed into it, whereas others pick areas of particular interest to them. It allows students to undertake in-depth research which they normally wouldn’t have time to do in other modules. It extends their investigative, project management and writing capabilities.

Final Year Module

Design Week “Students get to choose from a variety of live briefs and have a week to develop their concept into a fully defined design.“ Design Week allows finalist students to select a brief from a range provided by a number of international companies and design consultancies. This allows students to have input into live commercial projects, generating both innovative and feasible design proposals within the tight deadline of a week long project. The


initial stages of the project require the student to define a design direction for the selected brief by performing user research and insight generation. Appropriate and innovative solutions are generated, refined and developed leading to a final proposal where professional presentation is key.

Optional Module


“In this module students focus on advanced 3D modelling techniques as well as the role CAD plays in industry and manufacture.”

CAMM stands for Computer Aided Modelling and Manufacture and is the module of choice for students who wish to develop their CAD abilities and learn advanced surface modelling. The core of the module involves the reverse engineering of an existing complex product in Creo with integrated adaptations for rapid prototyping. Students then use this model to produce high quality renderings. Further to this, there is an exam which extends student’s understanding of concepts such as virtual and rapid prototyping, advanced computer simulations, product lifecycle management and CNC machining.

Optional Module

Computer Aided Ergonomics

“Computer Aided Ergonomics involves applying task analysis and user observation to support the simulation of workstation design in digital human modelling software.”

The module is comprised of a series of lectures, workshops and user observations that allow students to explore the concepts of varying human proportions and the effect these have on user interactions. This information is then applied to the evaluation of occupant accommodation and control layout within a car’s interior. With all research being independently driven, students find themselves observing driver behaviour, analysing the frequency and importance of tasks and evaluating such tasks in the digital human modelling environment. After this thorough evaluation, students are then able to make informed design proposals based on the information found.

15 15

Optional Modules

Entrepreneurship & Innovation

“Here students learn about entrepreneurship in the context of novel design and technical innovation. ” This module provides content on a range of issues surrounding entrepreneurship and its influence on the development of successful novel designs and technical innovation. Through exciting and engaging lectures alongside multiple guest speakers, this module presents a range of topics; from small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), entrepreneurial abilities and proper business structure. Students gain insight into how a small simple concept or idea can grow into a global organisation and innovative success.

Optional Modules

Interaction Design “It’s about creating great user experiences” Interaction Design provides students with insight into how to design useful and engaging digital products. Students are required to conduct research on targeted user groups, monitoring the users’ activities and recording the outcomes. From this, mind maps are developed to highlight key insights and opportunities, depicting information gathered such as, relevant task, perceptions, experience goals, photos and demographics. Interactive prototypes of concept designs are then created using Flash to demonstrate the usability and flow of the design. 16 16

Optional Modules

Universal Design “This module develops student’s understanding of design principals for the elderly and disabled in mainstream population.”

The Universal design module provides students with a range of skills to help them better design for older people and those with living with disabilities. Students undertake empathic modelling and learn how to do interviews, observation and task analysis alongside co-designing and other design methods to produce assistive technology product designs. This year students worked with a special

Notable Year Two Modules “Building the skill sets required for the final year.”

educational school and worked with staff and pupils to produce concept designs that were judged within a ‘dragon’s den’ presentation at the School. This involved three visits to the School, with the pupils returning to the Design School to gain experience of using the industry grade facilities.

Design & Manufacture Technology In this module, students design a widget which is to be injection moulded in the design school’s own machine. In groups, they machine their mould tools using a combination of manual and CNC machining. The final step is to use an injection moulding machine to create a number of widgets which are displayed on a point of sale unit.

Design Practice Design Practice helps prepare students for the Final Year Design Project. Throughout the module, students will have the opportunity to practice prototyping and manual modelling skills. Students create their own handheld device through the use of manual processes to make a visual prototype which communicates what the final manufactured design would look like.

Design Communication The focus of design communication is to help enhance the industrial design modelling, communication and presentation techniques of students. Using a combination of Creo, Photoshop and Illustrator, a number of projects are completed including the creation of a design portfolio, various CAD models, renders and display boards.

Sustainability & Design Sustainable design introduces students to issues associated with the subject. Students examine current sustainable design practice and are introduced to current tools and techniques used for successful sustainable design. They also have the opportunity to work on live briefs which have a focus on sustainability.
