Think of all the new products that come out every year, such as smart phones, faster computers, thinner high definition televisions and much more. Products always need updating and changing to reflect people’s needs.

"We’re changing the world with technology."
Bill Gates

How have different products that you use changed over the last 10 years? These changes could be to improve the function of the product and how it works. They may change products just to improve their appearance. Many people are involved in designing and making these products from electronic engineers to product designers who look at the shape and style of a product.

During the 2 years spent studying A-Level Product Design, you will learn more about materials, components and the applications of these in Product Design. You will create new products in several design and make projects.

You will carry out some problem solving task to come up with ideas that will help improve others lives.
