Burç Öç
Product Design & Development Engineer

I am a Senior Product Design and Development Engineer with significant experience in design, concept creation, CAD modeling, prototyping and product development in the wide range industries, using different production materials and methods (e.g., injection molding, thermoforming, casting and additive manufacturing).


Over the past 12 years, I have participated in more than 70 domestic and international projects. I have contributed to all stages of product lifecycles, from concept creation to the end of the production phase. Since 2017, I have been working as a Senior Product Development Engineer at Ford Otosan, Body Interior Trim Department. In this job, I have control over significant budget allocations and am managing relationships with various stakeholders towards achieving the final objectives, in line with DFSS.

Upon completion of my undergraduate degree in Metallurgical Engineering, I aspired to build a career in design and engineering. Therefore, I decided to further my education with a master’s degree in Industrial Product Design at Istanbul Technical University (the top university in Turkey in the field of technology and engineering). Both my graduate studies and my experience in working with a variety of clients have taught me that life is about learning and development. The knowledge and experience that I have acquired through working on a diverse range of projects have helped me in tackling the various challenges that arise during different project phases rather easily. I believe that my portfolio illustrates this diversity.
