Northumbria university


I am looking into going to Northumbria to study industrial design but am trying to decide between the BA Design for Industry course and the BSc Product design technology course. Although I think I may be slightly more suited to the BSc course, as I am quite good at maths, the BA Design for industry course appears to be the one that is very well respected and where the graduates seem to go on to very good Industrial design jobs.

Does anyone have any opinions on the differences between the courses and which one seems better, especially people who have been on either course?


I havn’t studied at Northumbria but I would rate the Bs/c over the Ba as you come out of uni with a broader skill set, and with this more employable.

Do other people think a BSc is more generally valuable than a BA?
