In todays highly competitive and fast changing global market engineers need advanced knowledge and highly developed skills in how to create competitive and sustainable products in multidisciplinary teams. Integrated Product Design is a two year graduate programme, focusing on processes and methods for product development in order to create innovative, usable, competitive and sustainable products and services.
The programme offers three specialisation tracks: Integrated Product Development (IPU) that focuses on the organisation, leadership and performance of product development processes in large teams, Industrial Design Engineering (IDE) that focuses on the functional design and communicative aspects of the product in relation to user and market, and Product Innovation (PI) that combines product development with business development, marketing, and strategy.
Integrated Product Design will give you key expertise that can be applied in many different industrial and business sectors.
The Integrated Product Development track gives competence to work with complex multidisciplinary projects, either as technical expert, project manager, business developer, or concultant.
The Industrial Design Engineering track provides competence to work with product development and design engineering, user driven design, either as a technical expert, a project manager, a commissioner of design and other related positions.
The Product Innovation track provides opportunities for a variety of jobs, in areas such as project management, business development and product planning. Other possible careers can be found in engineering and management consultancy and in high-tech start-up companies.
The programme offers competence in several disciplines such as product innovation, eco-design, human-product interaction, service design, group dynamics, visualisation and communication of design proposals, and prototyping. The programme consists of a mixture of basic compulsory courses, optional courses and track specific courses. There are good opportunities to create your own mix of courses to match your interests and career plans. The track specific courses are primarily based on project assignments carried out in groups. The projects are usually done in co-operation with a company or organisation that provides a real life task and setting.
The thesis project is supervised by an experienced researcher and can be performed in an industrial setting or in an academic environment. Each student is encouraged to actively search for a suitable thesis project in industry, and KTH will provide some information on suitable points of contact. If you are an international student, we recommend that you find a thesis project in your country of permanent residence or in the country where you intend to start your professional career.
