Bachelor in Industrial Design

The subject area Industrial design is a rapidly accelerating trend in the transition from industrial society to a knowledge and communication-based society.

There are produced more products than ever before - and of very variable quality. The requirements for the products has also changed - they are becoming more intelligent and communicative. The products' values ​​have moved from the purely material to what they can and what we can with them.

On Industrial design students work with the classic virtues such as sketching, marker drawing, 3-D programming and model building. But they deal increasingly with overall concepts for users' future and the intangible products carry with them. Therefore, using observation and mapping of user behavior patterns is a core area for the subject.

Industrial design emphasizes idea generation and visualization and the ability to work with companies and other professionals - from merkonomer and engineers to sociologists and anthropologists.

The field is currently working with numerous companies on training and project development, including Bang & Olufsen, Lego, Innovation Lab and Kildemoes.
