Industrial Design

2 year | Start date: Autumn 2017 | Degree: Degree of Master of Science (120 credits) with a major in Product Development, specialisation in Industrial Design

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.

Creating good ideas and making them look great

The courses has an interdisciplinary approach and is guided by the relationship between humans and products. The programme provides students the opportunity to use a variety of tools to quickly visualize 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.

Two tracks

The Master's programme is made up of two tracks, each of them running during two semesters/one year. The first year you study the track "The Man and the Product" and you will learn more about design communications, business and ergonomics. The second year's track is called "The Company and the Environment", and you will then focus on sharp projects within the area of industrial design.

International perspective

All courses are conducted in English and you study together with other international students. There are possibilities for you to study one semester abroad at one of our partner universities.

Industrial placement course

In this course you have five weeks of internship in a company or another organization. The purpose is to you an understanding of future work tasks and how these are related to your education.

Career prospects

On 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.
