Focuses during the studies

Product design is all about designing industrial gear for mass consumption. These include, for example, household appliances, furniture, machinery, electronic devices and even vehicles. Factors that are important in Product Design are functionality, appearance, profitability, innovation and last but not least, essential environmental aspects.

During your studies you will specialize in successfully creating, implementing and commercializing innovations. Additionally, as it is an interdisciplinary degree, you should expect the areas of Mechanical Engineering, Business Management and Design to be involved.  

With the constantly growing requirements of consumers there is also a special emphasis on Communication, Cultural Studies, Psychology and Media Studies. People’s needs are analyzed and later represented in the design of a product. From concept to realization, you will be able to actively participate in the life-shaping of society.

A Masters degree in Product Design requires certain qualifications. Bachelor graduates in Product Design, General Design, Mechanical Engineering, Business Engineering or other subject-related studies are all eligible for a Master in the field of Product Design.

The regular study period is between three and four semesters. Depending on the university and specialization you can receive a “Master of Arts” or “Master of Science” degree.
