Field of activity Industry, trade, forwarding companies
School qualifications

Fields of activity

Technical product designers are specialised in CAD programmes. They support the work of engineers by creating and modifying 3D data sets and documentation for components and assemblies based on design and technical specifications.

In doing so, they take into account manufacturing processes and material properties, plan and coordinate workflows and construction processes, and check and assess work results.

When a new product is designed, technical product designers calculate lengths and areas, volume and mass as well as the centre of gravity of the product. To do this, they must have mathematical knowledge and master geometric laws.

Technical product designers design assemblies and individual parts. In order to assess their resilience or flexibility, they need to know their material properties. Basic knowledge of physics and an interest in materials science are therefore advantageous.

Complex CAD software is used in design and development departments. Basic computer skills are therefore helpful. In addition, a presentation is usually created to introduce the product to be developed.

Product designers also learn to calculate the costs for development, production and material of a new product. The ability to work in a team and in a customer-oriented manner is part of the training.

What you bring with you:

  • Good to very good knowledge of mathematics
  • Interest in materials science
  • Creativity and fun in drawing and constructing
  • Diligence and spatial imagination
