This Master’s programme provides the opportunity to broaden your knowledge and creativity within the area of industrial design. You will learn more about the whole design process from a human point of view, with a focus on usability, ergonomics, aesthetics, materials and production, as well as drafting techniques and visualisation.
Industrial design is about creating good ideas and making them look great. The courses on this programme have an interdisciplinary approach and are guided by the relationship between humans and products. The programme provides students with the opportunity to use a variety of tools to quickly visualise ideas and concepts in order to develop their creativity in the design studio and through model workshops.
Students also learn to formulate and present ideas and solutions and identify new products and opportunities. A considerable part of this master’s programme is run in project form, implementing sharp projects in collaboration with a company.
Upon completion of the degree, you will be well prepared for work on industrial design projects, or as a consultant. If you are interested in a career in research contexts, the programme also provides a firm foundation for future research work.
