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, services and business models.
Integrated Product Design consists of two specialisation tracks. Industrial Design Engineering (IDE) concentrates on the functional design and communicative aspects of the product in relation to user and market and the Innovation Management and Product Development (IPD) track focus on managing innovation and product development processes.
The education consists of a mixture of compulsory courses, optional courses and track specific courses with opportunities for students to create their own mix of courses to match individual interests and career goals. During the program you will have contact with industry in the courses and the projects are usually done in co-operation with a company or organisation providing you with valuable real-world experience working.
The Integrated Product Design programme offers Masters students a comprehensive education and refined expertise applicable in many different industrial and business sectors.
The Industrial Design Engineering track provides the skills necessary to work with product development and design engineering, user-driven design, either as a technical expert, a project manager, or a commissioner of design and other related positions.
The Innovation Management and Product Development Track provide opportunities for a variety of jobs in areas related to innovation such as project management, business development and product planning. You also instill competence to work with complex multidisciplinary product development projects, either as a technical expert, project manager, R&D manager, or consultant.
In the Innovation Management and Product Development track you will study and work with innovation in three ways; you will develop results in terms of new products, services and business models, you will organize and manage innovation processes both from a development project perspective and the perspective of organizational structure and you will work on innovation strategies in terms of new business development. In this program you will approach cutting edge research in the innovation management and product development area and have a firm collaboration with industry.
In Industrial Design Engineering (IDE) you will study and work with product development and service design. You will improve your skills in product development both from a mechanical engineering point of view as well as an industrial design point of view.
