Diploma In Plastic Product Design

Description:

The interior trim of an automobile consists of many different types of parts ranging from seating to plastic parts. This course begins with an overview of the entire interior and then moves into focusing on the injected molded parts within the automobile. Candidates not only create features needed for plastic part design but they learn the process behind the design.
