Industridesign, 180 hp
In the Bachelor’s programme in Industrial Design you will learn to create products and services for the society of the future. As an industrial designer you use your knowledge of design, sustainability, the market and production to cooperate with others in creating solutions that are based on the wishes and needs of their users.
A good industrial designer is interested in design and understands how things are used and the contexts to which they can belong. In Industrial Design at Konstfack you will be given training in creating high quality design proposals with their own explicit expression methodically and exploratively.
You will learn to understand what users want, solve their problems, embrace a sustainability perspective, adopt a market focus in your work and use materials in an innovative way, while at the same time enhancing your capacity to produce three-dimensional designs
We work both individually and in groups and often in cooperation with companies or other educational programmes/organisations. The ability of a designer to cooperate with others, use a design process that functions well and combine several different perspectives in a proposed design is decisive for the success of a design project.
The artistic design process in which we reflect on practical and theoretical aspects is totally integrated in the programme.
