Engineering Project Day 2022 - Generating sustainable energy

Jake, a BSc Product Design student, talks us through his final year project - "Using the public's everyday movements to generate sustainable energy"

I've done a project on generating energy, using people's movement.

As the population is growing, obviously we are using more energy.

By having a product like this, we reduce the amount of energy needed for these applications outsourced by fossil fuels.

We're really trying to create a more greener future.

I'm really proud. It's taken me a long time. I've really enjoyed the course and how it's led to this final sort of moment.

My favourite thing about product design has been the sort of community element of it and 3D printing.

I really love the CAD and software that we get access to.

I've really enjoyed it.

I love all the coursework we get given especially when CAD software is involved. Learning a new skill or completing a tough piece of work on CAD is so rewarding. I am most proud of how my skills are developing including; CAD skills, drawing skills, group work communication, presentation skills and so many more.

Facilities and specialist equipment

Product Design BSc (Hons) - University of Portsmouth

Learn about the facilities on offer at the University of Portsmouth on our BSc (Hons) Product Design and Innovation course.

The Product Design and Innovation course is a subtle blend of design skills and engineering skills, material science, bringing the creativity to engineering. This allows you to bring the knowledge you've got from a science and engineering background, but apply it to designing and creating new things. I think for product design, the appeal for our students is whatever you feel like your strengths are, you can kind of lean into that a little bit.

So if you prefer the CAD design and the modelling in there, you can enhance your skills in that. If you like the material science, you can look at that. If you like the creativity and the design side of things, you can focus on your conceptual design work. Particularly for our graduates as well, there's such a diverse range of jobs, whether you want to go on to be a pure product designer, maybe as a consultant you can, if you want to go on to do more engineering, if you want to go into management, innovation. There's so many options available to you and I think that's what our students really get out of our course. This is the product design studio. This is an open access space where students can come in whenever they feel like it. We've got lots of facilities for them, lots of equipment they can use to work on their projects, their designs and their module coursework. We have Octocore computers with really good processing power,

we've got graphics tablets of all kinds, we've got dedicated Wacom Cintiqs that you can draw straight onto the screen, we've got 3Dconnexion Spacemouse kits, the wireless ones, so students can do advanced CAD modelling with those. We primarily use Creo and KeyShot for our course and we've got access to all the software students could possibly need.

So between the second and third years, students can opt to do a placement year. This is something we strongly encourage because employers really favour students who have a year of industry experience. Youll be working in a course-relevant environment or project. Placement students always come back much stronger, they've got a bunch of industry skills that they can bring back with them,

it really bolsters what they can deliver in the final year and their final year projects always come out that much stronger. I'm really proud to be part of this course and deliver to our students something that they can really get stuck into and it's so good to see what our students go on to do after they graduate. So many of them have got really interesting, exciting careers and it's just fantastic to be part of that development.

In each year, you need to study modules worth a total of 120 credits. For example, four modules worth 20 credits and one module worth 40 credits.

What you'll study

Core modules

In this module, you'll analyse existing engineered consumer devices, considering style, function, ergonomics and more. You'll then research, develop and present a product to join a household line of products, using 3D CAD software and high-end rendering software to model your concept. When you complete the module, you'll have experience of the practices used by companies developing modern home devices.

In this career-focused module, you'll cultivate professional engineering capabilities that align your learning to industry priorities, like risk mitigation and legal obligations. You'll work individually and in groups, creating ethical, sustainable and practical solutions to complex business challenges.

You'll learn to communicate your ideas effectively and explore the visual conventions of product design. You'll use concept drawings and mock-up models of product designs, and develop skills including hand sketching, use industry standard vector and raster based software, and complete simple physical prototyping.

You will develop British Standards compliant skills in hand drafting and computer aided design (CAD) in this module. Through your design practice, you'll produce sketches and assembly drawings that communicate technical information clearly and accurately, and demonstrate the professional use of design tools to plan, build, and test a model or prototype.

You'll learn about material classification, properties, testing and selection for different applications. You'll also cover the capabilities, limitations and uses of manufacturing technologies. When you complete the module, you'll be able to show essential skills in materials science and manufacturing careers.

You'll model electrical circuit performance, use mechanical, thermal, fluid and energy transfer principles, and analyse how these apply to products.

Core modules

You'll discover the basics of solid modelling, assemblies, surfacing techniques and finite element analysis, and use these as a design tool. You'll use a solid modeller to create simple parts and assemblies, use finite elements for analysing simple structures, and apply surface modelling in 3D CAD product design. You'll also examine 3D assemblies for manufacture functionality and communicate designs.

In this module, you'll develop your modelling skills in materials from clay to 3D printing, allowing to bridge the gap between concept drawings and physical prototyping. Working with industry briefs, you'll ideate, test and refine your product designs, then present your results in a professional manner. When you complete the module, you'll have a portfolio of professional solutions that spans concept sketches, CAD models and physical forms.

Through a hands-on empirical study, you'll gain key skills in user-centred research methods like interviews and surveys. You'll then utilize your insights, along with published research, to conceive an informed product solution aiming to solve real user needs. This provides you with vital competencies spanning research, analysis, ideation, and applying academic literature to tackle design challenges.

In this module, you'll identify physical principles through lab work, such as fluid dynamics and heat transfer, then learn to apply your learning to product design tasks like material selection and sustainable design. You'll combine this with an ongoing study of the aesthetic and integrity considerations that inform your design practice, leading to well-rounded skills designed for success in product design roles.

In this module, you'll analyse needs, develop a product design specification, then explore and evaluate concepts and options. You'll then consider the design brief's performance, time-scale, and feasibility goals, and select an appropriate design concept to meet them. 

Optional modules

You can learn programming from scratch on this module, picking up programming techniques and ways of using algorithms, data structures and graphical interfaces. You'll work with Visual Basic and embedded systems languages, using them to analyse and solve problems with code. Completing this module means you'll have the core skills for programming in engineering careers.

In this module, you'll evaluate metals, polymers, ceramics and composites, and how to use them in mechanical manufacturing applications. Looking at the composition and properties of these materials, you'll identify their capabilities and limitations, and make recommendations of optimal materials for processing techniques. You'll also apply scientific, technological and engineering principles to address problems in next-generation fabrication designs.

Core modules

Under guidance from a specialist supervisor, you'll work independently on a major project that showcases your knowledge, skills and area of interest. As you delve into your topic, you'll hone project management abilities - from conception and analysis to investigation and reporting on your progress. You'll complete this module with a substantial document, reporting on your project, that demonstrates your strengthened technical capabilities and professional self-direction.

In this module, you'll gain experience in 3D modeling, assemblies, CAM simulation, analysis and reverse engineering. You'll learn to apply your learning to optimise product design, undertake FEA strength analysis, and appraise the CAD CAM software you're using.

In this module, you'll consider national and international responses to global environmental issues, using perspectives drawn from risk management, life-cycle analysis and security frameworks. You'll appraise materials and processes, technical innovations and ethical behaviour, in preparation for careers that can drive positive change.

You'll compare material properties and manufacturing processes while analysing related social, economic, and environmental impacts. As you study the properties of advanced materials, you'll also learn computer-aided materials evaluation and methods of communicating your findings to technical and non-technical audiences.

In this professionally-focused module, you'll gather and evaluate data on products you design and their target markets, then communicate your findings in visual formats. You'll use technical literature, industry databases and legal material to build a portfolio of designs and market research, and present this as though to a prospective employer.

After your second or third year, you can do an optional study abroad or work placement year to get valuable longer-term work experience in the industry.

We’ll help you secure a work placement that fits your aspirations. You’ll get mentoring and support throughout the year.

Changes to course content

We use the best and most current research and professional practice alongside feedback from our students to make sure course content is relevant to your future career or further studies.

Therefore, some course content may change over time to reflect changes in the discipline or industry. If a module doesn't run, we'll let you know as soon as possible and help you choose an alternative module.

I like the way our course allows students to have their own independence.

Teaching

Teaching methods on this course include:

  • lectures
  • seminars
  • tutorials (personal and academic)
  • laboratory work
  • project work
  • computer-aided design (CAD) system activity
  • open access study

How you're assessed

You’ll be assessed through:

  • written examinations and multiple choice tests
  • coursework and portfolio
  • case studies
  • practical tests
  • presentations

You’ll be able to test your skills and knowledge informally before you do assessments that count towards your final mark.

You can get feedback on all practice and formal assessments so you can improve in the future.

How you'll spend your time

One of the main differences between school or college and university is how much control you have over your learning.

We use a blended learning approach to teaching, which means you’ll take part in both face-to-face and online activities during your studies.  As well as attending your timetabled classes you'll study independently in your free time, supported by staff and our virtual learning environment, Moodle.

A typical week

We recommend you spend at least 35 hours a week studying for your BSc (Hons) Product Design and Innovation degree. In your first year, you’ll be in timetabled teaching activities such as lectures, tutorials, practical classes and supervised workshop time for about 12 hours a week. The rest of the time you’ll do independent study such as research, reading, coursework and project work, alone or in a group with others from your course. You'll probably do more independent study and have less scheduled teaching in years 2 and 3, but this depends on which modules you choose.

Most timetabled teaching takes place during the day, Monday to Friday. Optional field trips may involve evening and weekend teaching or events. There’s usually no teaching on Wednesday afternoons.

Term dates

The academic year runs from September to June. There are breaks at Christmas and Easter.
