Overview

This programme is ideal for students who love to design and develop new products and/or improve existing ones. Students will use creative methods to design, visualise, develop, and test new products both virtually and physically. The programme highlights the importance of successful product realisation by having a close collaboration with well-known companies in various courses.

This master's programme has two tracks, Industrial Design and Digitalisation. Students need to choose one of the two tracks.

  • In the first track, the consumer experience, product aesthetics and product and user interaction are in focus.
  • The second track focus on Digital tools and automation in product development.

The integration of the products and their manufacturing is emphasised in the programme as well as the sustainability of the products. The two tracks form a perfect combination in product realisation giving students a great opportunity for careers as product developers.

To further strengthen the connection to industry and to increase practical experience the programme contains several project courses where students work closely in collaboration with various companies, e.g., the Ikea project.

Students who have graduated from Product Design will be sought after in the job market in that they will have insights into both the creative and analytical sides of product development. The program is also preparatory for a role as PhD students in universities and institutes.


Graduates from the program will also be able to take on the task of improving the product development process in companies and proposing how to improve knowledge reuse and to make the product development more efficient. In addition to the creative aspects of the programme, engineering analyses are also trained, involving for example structural analysis and optimization.
