This is an online syllabus for the 'Design Prototype to Mass Production' so called 'D2M' class.
Democratization in manufacturing changed the scope of industrial development. Now you can buy a table top water jet CNC, table top CNC like Other Mill and Metal printing 3D printer, etc. One can make anything they want without a lot of capital. Microcontrollers are made with PCB software like Eagle and programmed with arduino IDE. Starting with a decent design prototype can lead to a mass production.
Learning the ecosystem of starting a hardware startup will give you a lesson why a designer needs to know the engineering basics.
Materials used in American automobile is not different from Japanese automobile. Mass production facility working with Samsung might be the one you will be working with. However, what you will hold in your hands will be different just like American vehicle is different from Japanese vehicle. Knowing engineering scheme is necessary to the designers in tech industry.
