Among the many design disciplines is product designing. Often called “creative engineering”, product design involves ideating, conceptualizing, testing, and manufacturing a tangible product that serves a certain purpose. From ray-bans to mobile phones, nearly every product that we use in everyday life is an invention of product designers who studied the market, understood the needs of consumers, and together with talented engineers conceptualized and developed products that addressed these needs. Hence, product design is a multifaceted discipline that cuts across marketing, design, and engineering and can be pursued by students from a variety of academic backgrounds.
A diploma is product design is quite often a postgraduate qualification offered at design as well as engineering institutes and admission is based on undergraduate qualification, as well as entrance tests to infer an applicant’s aptitude. The course involves the study of 3-D design, various materials used to build products, and their properties, various human factors to be considered while designing (ergonomics), and considerations such as stiffness, strength, impact, appearance, and precision among others. Owing to recent concerns over sustainability and conservation, environmental factors have also become an important element of product design and several courses include environmental considerations to bear in mind while designing new products. The course is usually hands on, and students have to build their own product and applying all the skills taught during the course, from conceptualizing to building a working prototype on which they are graded. There have been several instances where exceptional prototypes are even sold to manufacturers by enterprising students and institutes. Hence, the course is extremely exciting and rewarding for those with an honest interest, keen passion, and original ideas.
