The Design & Technology: Product Design course is amongst the most exciting and interesting in the College.

A Level Design and Technology: Product Design (3-D Design) helps students take a broad view of design and technology, develop their capacity to design and make products and appreciate the complex relations between design, materials, manufacture and marketing.

Students who have a passion for designing and making are encouraged to express their talents by our Design & Technology team. Almost everything that we experience is affected by design: our environment, our homes, the products that we use. Good design is at the center of our lives. The course at Reigate College involves students investigating people's needs, designing and manufacturing high quality products and evaluating their success.

Think about the objects that you love. Your mobile phone with its delicious curves was designed on a computer screen. The car you yearn for started life as a reduced size clay model. A building that you admire sprang from the drawing board of an architect. And it’s not a new phenomenon. Our fascination with 3D design goes back to flint arrow heads and earthenware pots. As a 3D designer you are at the crossroads of a number of skills. Of course you need creativity, in order to imagine the shape and function of the object, but you’ll also need to be interested in learning about manufacturing processes, materials and the work of past designers.
