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 development is considered transdisciplinary, it requires intensive knowledge of manufacturing and design methods, design and production tools, 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 combines knowledge and working methods in production engineering, industrial design and material development. It emphasises a combination of engineering qualifications and design skills through project courses in which the students apply their knowledge to practice. The projects are carried out in close cooperation with industries.

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 course exercises are a flexible and dynamic way to complete studies.
