Master's Programme in Industrial Design Engineering

New products are introduced to the market daily and at an increasing pace to meet the growing demands of customers.

As a result, the competition between manufacturers is entering a new phase.

Since product design and development are considered transdisciplinary, they require profound knowledge of design methods, manufacturing tools, production processes, ergonomics, aesthetics and sustainability. Skills in these areas help to respond to market demands rapidly and produce justifiable and usable products on a competitive market.

The Master's Programme in Industrial Design Engineering provides students with knowledge of innovative design, manufacturing methods, human factors, creative problem solving, advanced materials, industrial and business challenges, and environmental considerations. This knowledge is needed at different stages of product development to meet the needs of industries, support product users, and respond to environmental issues.

▶️ VIDEO: The Head of the Master's Programme relates why you should choose this Master's programme (the text continues below the video).

This Master's programme is a unique study opportunity in Finland, combining knowledge of and working methods in production engineering, industrial design and material development. It emphasises a combination of design skills and engineering qualifications through project courses in which students apply their knowledge to practice. Projects are carried out in close cooperation with Finnish and European industries. As a result, this programme is a popular major subject that has seen a rapid growth in applicant numbers nationally and internationally.  

The Master's Programme in Industrial Design Engineering employs massive open online courses (MOOCs), enabling students to complete nearly half of their studies remotely. The online courses and internet based exercises are a flexible and dynamic way to complete studies.

The course applies a hybrid of online and contact teaching: nearly two thirds of the teaching sessions are conducted remotely online. The contact lessons are usually not mandatory, and teachers may provide teaching material to students online. Course presentations, seminar days, meetings and laboratory visits are agreed on flexibly with the lecturer in charge of the course.
