The University of Huddersfield is an educational institution that offers high-quality teaching with a strong vocational emphasis. The school provides more than 300 pre-degree and first-degree courses and over 60 postgraduate courses. As one of the top five providers of courses with a paid work-placement, students benefit from close links with industry and commerce. Courses of study include Design Technology (especially BA/BSC Product Design), Transport Design, Multimedia, and Game Design, as well as Architecture and Interior and Fashion Design.


After evaluating several CAD packages, including Pro/ENGINEER, Solid Edge, and Mechanical Desktop, we chose SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software because many companies run live projects using SOLIDWORKS. In addition, SOLIDWORKS is easy to use, which means students quickly grasp the 3D world. Benefits of using SOLIDWORKS are ease of use, integrated SOLIDWORKS Simulation software, basic mold flow, and the ability to create 2D drawings.
