Industridesign, 180 hp

Creating products and services for the future and for the present!

As an industrial designer you can solve problems that affect many different people in many different situations. Therefore, you need to have knowledge of design, ergonomics, marketing and production, to be able to create sustainable solutions alongside others, throughout your future career.  The Bachelor's Programme in Industrial Design will, in short, teach you to create products and services for our contemporary and future society within a number of different fields.

It is good for an industrial designer to be creative, to be interested in form, and to understand how things are used, and in which context they can be included. During the programme, you will use your curiosity, imagination, and an exploratory approach to create innovative design proposals.  You will learn to understand people's wishes and needs, you will gain knowledge about sustainability, and you will use materials in a new way. At the same time, you will refine your ability to design three-dimensional shapes.

In our well-equipped workshops, where we use hand tools such as lathes, cutters, and 3D printers, we experiment and build prototypes in many different kinds of materials. We work both individually and in groups, and often collaborate with companies, other programmes and organisations. A big part of the programme is based on an artistic design practice that reflects on practical and theoretical aspects. During the programme, you will have an opportunity to go on an exchange semester to one of the schools all over the world that Konstfack collaborates with.
