Product Development & Integrative Technology is of 3 semesters’ duration (1.5 years) and is a top-up programme that aims to provide students with competencies within product development and/or development of services.

The programme is innovative in the sense that it is the first and only study programme that not only has a professional technical focus on product development but also strives to give students the competencies to actively integrate specialisations from other professions into their work.

Focus

In addition to the professional fields that you learnt about on your AP Degree programme, the Product Development & Integrative Technology programme will also focus on: 
  • Philosophy of Science
  • Product development methods
  • Design
  • Project supervision and management
  • Innovation
  • Technology development
  • Sustainability
  • Environment

The three specialisations

The Product Development & Integrative Technology programme offers three different fields of study:
  • Product development/design & production 
  • Installation, automation & energy 
  • IT & electronics
The teaching and learning activities for each specialisation are based on, and further develop, the academic and professional standards that are achieved through the degree that qualified the student for admission to the programme. To the widest possible extent, we will try to plan lectures in a way that will enable you to follow individual courses on the other two specialisations as well. 

Any given week will typically consist in interdisciplinary instruction, subject specific instruction, interdisciplinary project work and individual studies. Each student will be allocated a process supervisor (interdisciplinary with a specialisation in product development) as well as a specialisation supervisor (who has academic knowledge within your chosen specialisation).
 

Going abroad

During your Bachelor Degree programme in Product Development & Integrative Technology, you will have different opportunities to go abroad. In practise, going abroad during studies means that you will go away on an internship which may take place anywhere in the world.

Graduated students

With a professional Bachelor's Degree in Product Development & Integrative Technology, you will be able to take part in product development processes and control and manage them. You should be able to make a considerable contribution to the meaningful integration of several technologies in the development of products and services of a business. Furthermore, you should be able to actively involve end-users in the development phase through user-driven innovation.
