Brand and Product Design

The Brand and Product Design Certificate Program cultivates graduate-level of expertise in industrial product design, development and production through a practical curriculum that exposes students to a wide range of product types, and which will enhance the students’ design capabilities.

Students will understand the manufacturing considerations related to product’s design, focus on concept development, acquire the drafting and technical aspects, and concentrate on graphic skills in order to come up with solutions that meet customers’ current needs, from conception to implementation.

The Brand and Product Design Certificate allows students to acquire more technical knowledge in the field of Product Design and Packaging.

Course Descriptions
PROD 410
Computer Aided Manufacturing
This course utilizes software with which students learn to convey Computer Aided Design information to CAM software which in turn instructs CNC milling machines.
Prerequisite: AIP 320 & AIP 425 & GDP 300 & GDP 400
PROD 420
Product Manufacturing I
This course covers the specifications and the manufacturing and recycling processes of glass, ceramics and metals. Students will learn how to solve packaging and product design problems, addressing the appropriate detailing for the process. Field trips and design of product parts are included in the course.
Prerequisite: GDP 310 & AIP 425
PROD 421
Product Manufacturing II
This course is the second in the sequence and covers plastics and composites. The same methodology described in GDP 460 will be followed in this course.
Prerequisite: PROD 420
PROD 430
Packaging & Product Design I & Shop
This studio course teaches how to design a product which satisfies human physical, physiological, and psychological considerations. Students will study how to design a product intended for mass production. The application of their designs in the production of full scale or model scale prototypes in the provided shop is expected.
Prerequisite: PROD 420
PROD 431
Packaging & Product Design II & Shop
This is an upper level studio that builds on the skills and methodologies of design acquired in GDP 462. Students taking this course will go through the complete process of design material choosing, detailing and manufacturing. They will synthesise their design and fabrication skills while exploring conceptual esthetic and structural issues.
Prerequisite: PROD 430
