A-level Product Design

A-level Product Design @ Bury St Edmunds Academy Trust County Upper School

Product Design enables students to take a broad view of design and technology, develop their capacity to design and manufacture products and appreciate the complex relations between the design process, materials, manufacture and marketing. Throughout Years 12 and 13 students are encouraged to develop independent study skills through research and investigation. Students will also learn a variety of graphical, modelling and manufacturing skills that can be utilised throughout the design driven course. In Year 12 a single focused project uses a range of skills and disciplines including design development, leading to a final outcome. The project work will range from intense design and make tasks, group presentations through to design folder and manufacturing work.
