Masters in Industrial Design

Industrial design aims to develop concepts and specifications of products and systems, optimize functionality, to improve appearance, which provide value and other benefits for users and manufacturers. Industrial designers must not only look into product functionality and appearance, but also they have to ensure user attractiveness and satisfaction of the product. Bachelors in industrial design involve gaining expertise in design, research, innovation and innovative solutions.

The skills students will gain from industrial design are understanding technology and innovation, problem solving skills, becoming creative thinkers. Graduates will know how to use sources of information and expertise in the evaluation and selection of technical solutions for the development of new products. Masters in Industrial design integrate marketing techniques to evaluate product satisfaction and the impact of the promotion campaigns.

Career options for industrial design graduates would be: automotive designer, software designer, consumer products designer, exhibition designer, special effects producer. Graduates can also get hired in areas like sales or marketing, logistics and supply chain, all of them becoming very popular these days on the labour market.
