    This course is taught in parallel with Brunel’s successful BSc Design courses and is distinguished by including technical content whilst maintaining a creative and practical approach.

    It produces designers who have the ability to realise their design solutions together with a comprehensive understanding of design theory and issues. The technical emphasis means that students can develop products that both look good and work well.

    Final year options have a strong technological and humanistic focus, and your major project usually comprises an aesthetic model and a functional prototype.

    About Design at Brunel

    Brunel’s Design degrees are some of the most renowned and respected in Europe and our students and graduates have won many national and international design awards. All our Honours and Master’s programmes build on a broad base of knowledge, skills and industrial experience. We view the realisation of every aspect of a concept as vital to successful design.

    To enable this, we have an extensive cross-disciplinary lecturing team, including mechanical and electrical engineers, computer and materials scientists, mathematicians, psychologists, and practising designers and graphic communication experts. It is this cross-disciplinary nature that gives our students the knowledge and expertise they require, and distinguishes us from virtually every other Design and Engineering department in the UK.

    All our lecturing staff are research or professionally active – sometimes both – which ensures that the content of our programmes is constantly up-to-date and evolving with the commercial worlds of both design and engineering.


    Graduates will have significant engineering understanding and will be able to take on key roles encompassing all aspects of the design process, as well as being prepared for further research-based studies.

    We believe that good design is the combination of commercial awareness with creative and inspirational thought validated by sound technological reasoning, defined through the design process. We produce communicators who are at ease working with members of engineering, design and marketing teams and appreciating their individual needs, and capable of contributing to the total design process.

    Design at Brunel University has evolved to meet the needs of industry worldwide, by teaching highly motivated students, through in-depth professional studies, to become imaginative yet practical professional designers.

    Course Content

    Throughout the programme you will share many core design modules, including materials, graphic media and workshop practice with students on the BSc programmes, but the study of mechanics and electronics will be via workshop-based learning rather than pure subject-based lectures.

    We emphasise the application of technology throughout all the courses, with integrated project work forming a substantial part of the course at all levels.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
