Product Design and Development Engineers use engineering techniques to bring new products to life or redesign existing products.
Product Design and Development Engineers work on all stages of product creation, product modification and product componentry. They support activities ranging on early concept feasibility, Computer Aided Design (CAD) and other modelling, activities and stages through to final preparation for launch and customers. This includes working in concept studios, rapid prototyping, assembly, testing, validating and analysing performance. Typically they work closely with suppliers and managers in bringing new concepts to life or contributing to redesigns of existing products.
