Huw Hopkins - MSc Advanced Product Design
Having graduated as a BSc Product Design student in 2015 the next step for me was to continue my education and progress onto the MSc Advanced Product Design programme.

The prospects of increased employability and increased opportunities have been met; through gaining a successful internship and having the opportunity to work on projects in India, Tiree (Scotland) and Belgium.

The unrestricted nature of design has always been appealing to me and I would consider myself to be a hands on designer with a passion for making and creating. Designing for medical applications also fits into my ethos of designing morally correct and justifiable products.

In March 2016 I was given the opportunity of an internship at a medical devices company called Creo Medical based in Chepstow. The company specialises in minimally invasive surgery and has high prospects for the future of endoscopy.

The internship was a great opportunity for me to practice my existing design skills, work on a live brief, but most importantly the time spent at Creo has been hugely valuable and enjoyable learning curve.

I look forward to being able to develop my skills further at Creo and am very grateful for all of the opportunities I have been given over the course of the MSc programme.
