The products and service presented by UWE graduates in this catalogue demonstrate their outstanding knowledge of design, sustainability, ergonomics, product engineering and human centred design. Our final year Product Design students have combined their creativity with leading-edge technology and enterprise to present you the products at this exhibition. I am most delighted at their achievements and confident that you’ll agree that they are the type of graduates that our economy need and will, through their passion for innovation and enterprise, enable the well-being of our society for years to come. ‘Real live Application’ is core to our Product Design Course at UWE and we are proud that some of the products at this exhibition have already won awards with significant prizes or successfully sold and put into production. The students have worked on several live projects with several companies and it is not surprising that our students easily find employment or start their own companies on graduation. We are proud of their passion to approach living from new perspectives and fully commend each project at this exhibition to you.

This academic year has been a great success for UWE Product Design, students have been working on live projects with; Bisley, Mark Wilkinson Furniture and Bloodhound SSC. The Bisley Bite, which started as a CPD student project was awarded an “Honorable mention” in the prestigious red dot design awards 2010. An ergonomic test rig, created by PDT students for Bloodhound SSC, was displayed in the Design Museum in London and over the summer we will be moving both courses to brand new, purpose built, design studios. On behalf of our graduates, I would like to thank all my colleagues for their endless passion, patience, understanding and guidance. Congratulations to all our graduates for their great work, the skills they have developed through years of dedication, concentration and hard work will serve them well throughout their professional careers.

Creative Product Design BSc (hons) Creative Product Design puts people at the heart of product and service design. The Creative Product Design (CPD) programme prepares graduates for a career in product design, incorporating the wide array of design skills necessary for product development. These skills range from Design Research and Communication, Service Design, Marketing, Graphic Design, Packaging Design, all contributing to Consumer Product Design and Product Development centred on our society and human needs.

The Creative Product Design projects you see in this catalogue all started with complex, real world, humancentred problems. By using a process of intensive user research the graduates have developed innovative design solutions that create joinedup human experiences.

Product Design Technology BSc (hons) Product Design Technology graduates use both creative and technical skills to turn their concepts into innovative products. Ideal for students who are both creative designers and technical problem solvers Product Design Technology bridges between Product Design and Design Engineering. The PDT design process unites human factors, aesthetics and technology. A complete design process, starting with real world problems, through user research, concept sketching, design development, engineering analysis, on to manufacture and beyond.

Product Design Technology produces innovative and exciting designers, as confident with sketching and styling as they are with finite element analysis. Able to apply their understanding of technology, sustainable design, materials and manufacturing to solve human-centred design problems. Product Design Technology is accredited by the Institute of Engineering Designers.

Bisley Office Furniture

Bloodhound SSC In 2010, Product Design Technology second year students worked with the Bloodhound SSC team to produce concept designs which solve the complex problem of lifting and moving Bloodhound SSC between runs. The ergonomic test rig for the cockpit of Bloodhound SSC, which was designed and made by PDT students in 2008, was exhibited in the Ergonomics - Real Design Exhbition at the Design Museum London in 2010.

In 2007, a UWE student ‘live’project in collaboration with Bisley lead to the manufacture of the highly sucessful Bisley Bite. In 2010 the Bisley Bite, was awarded a ‘Honourable Mention’ in the Red dot design awards. In 2010, Creative Product Design second year students worked on a live project with Bisley to design another innovative new office furniture concept.
