Developing skills in technology design

Guide

If you are interested in developing your - or your employees' - technology design skills, you can take a variety of training and education courses. They range from:

  • Masters in Design university programmes
  • full-time and part-time college courses
  • one-day workshops

For example, Ulster University (UU) offers a course 'Technology with design', which provides an opportunity to study technology in the context of design for the marketplace.

The Centre for Competitive Creative Design (C4D) offers continual professional development and workshop programmes. The Chartered Society of Designers (CSD) offers a Find-a-Course tool to help you search for relevant design training opportunities.
