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.
The Master’s programme with the specialisation in Industrial Design at JTH 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.
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.
