Creative Spark is please to be co-facilitating a course alongside dundalk Skillnet and Dundalk Institute of Technology in Digital Design and Fabrication. Due to start in the next few months, this could be the perfect step for you towards a design oriented career. 

The programme will introduce students to the various digital design process used in product and machine design. Students will use 3D based CAD systems to design and simulate products and machine parts operations. Then using this data, they will prototype components using such processes as 3D printing and CNC machining.

Following a design methodology student will design products and components and gain an understanding of the stages of the product development life-cycle, from project planning, concept developments, market requirements, design, analysis, prototyping and testing. The student will gain an understanding of creative design methods, material selection and manufacturing processes used for rapid prototyping.

Need some extra convincing? Here are some testimonials from students have attended the course previously! 

great course, enjoyed it and learned alot. great lecturers involved always available and happy to help


Very in depth and helpful especially for myself that works on a CNC laser and also slightly involved in designing products for the company. Tutor was extremely helpful and helpful on time. This course really improved my ability in the workshop and was very interesting.


Attending this course has benefited my skill set, I felt coming from a design background there was a learning gap in seeing how components are to be fabricated & being able to now recognize how a component is to be designed & eventually fabricated by a various techniques such as CNC milling, CNC turning, 3D printing & Laser cutting has increased my engineering ability.


A great course for anyone interested in learning about 3D modelling and how to develop an idea into a finished prototype.


The course is delivered using a combination of online and in-class study. Students must have access to a computer and broadband internet connectivity.

Applicants are required to hold a minimum level 5/6 certificate or relevant industry work experience.
Applicants applying using work experience alone will be required to complete an interview as per the recognition of prior learning policy.
