BASIC GOALS OF THE STUDY PROGRAMME
The 2nd level postgraduate master's study programme of Product Design represents a possibility of further advanced studies for graduates from the 1st level graduate study program Mechanical Engineering in the field of industrial design based on the method from inside out.
The method was autonomously developed at study course Product Design of pre-bologna university study program Mechanical Engineering in the past nine years and it has been proven as exceptionally successful, but first of all it established the difference in relation to the most other technologies and design schools. The design method from inside out in the greatest possible extent integrates scientific methods from the praxis of mechanical engineering and uses them at different levels of design process, at the beginning in core and in the essence of a device or product.
At the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering we teach Product Design in awareness of responsibility for cultural and social development. Conceptual thinking and acting, design, plan, scheme, project are in foreground in all areas. Study is based on applicable knowledge about materials, production possibilities, presentation techniques and methods of transfer, it is denoted by theoretically scientific part. To the praxis oriented parts of the study prepare experts for the demands of the international working environment.
Such concept of the postgraduate master's study program is in accordance with common European orientation in higher education.

GENERAL COMPENTENCES OF GRADUATES
Students of master's study programme will be able of a systematic approach to product development, of the design of a new product, and all phases of the product development process, with accent on mass produced products, product service systems and products for professional use. The students will be able to adapt the design process to the load of specific design problems, to perform complex design activities with contemporary methods and advanced technologies, to plan, execute and manage complex product development process in multidisciplinary environments. The broad orientation of the study program will generate creative and innovative potential of students.

The postgraduate master study program of Product Design takes two years (4. semesters) in total amount of 120 ECTS credit points. The study closes with preparation and defence of master thesis, which includes individual research work.

The course of study:
In 1st semester students accomplish two subjects from the field of design (12 ECTS) and three subjects from the field of mechanical engineering (18 ECTS). Together 30 ECTS.
In 2nd semester students accomplish four subjects from the field of design (24 ECTS) and one from the field of mechanical engineering (6 ECTS). Together 30 ECTS.
In 3rd semester students accomplish one subject from the field of design (6 ECTS) and four subjects from the field of mechanical engineering (24 ECTS). Together 30 ECTS.
In 4th semester students accomplish two optional subjects in extent of 12 ECTS credit points, one from the set of optional subjects of the program Product Design and one from the set of compulsionary subjects in 2. semester i.e. optional subjects from the selected study field of the 2nd degree of the study programme Mechanical Engineering or optional subjects of courses of study program 2nd degree Mechanical Engineering i.e. other study programmes, prepare, work out and defend master thesis, which comprises 18 ECTS credit points, including individual research work, necessary for preparation of master thesis. Together 30 ECTS.
