Description

As a result of the transition from an industrialised society to a knowledge and communication based society, Industrial Design is a discipline in rapid development.
The discipline focuses on design solutions that integrate function, form and production system into a total design solution. In industrial design, students work with classic design disciplines such as:
  • sketching 
  • 3D programming 
  • model building
Students are to a great extent, involved with general concept development that considers users in contexts of the future and the immaterial values that products carry with them. Hence, user observation and interaction mapping have become core areas of the discipline.

The curriculum of the master in Industrial Design can be found here

Career Opportunities  

Industrial Design emphasises idea generation and visualisation as much as collaboration with industry and other professionals such as marketing experts, economists, engineers, sociologists and anthropologists. Industrial Design has an ongoing collaboration with a wide range of companies in both teaching and project development, including Bang & Olufsen, Lego, Innovation Lab and Kildemoes, among others.

Campus Kolding

Description

Design School Kolding differs from traditional universities in that the intake is based on talent. The School develops and cherishes talent, and challenges it by teaching students to reflect on their own process and on how to cooperate through projects drawn from a specific user context – often in collaboration with the business community.

Design School Kolding builds on the tradition of Danish design, placing focus on design which is meaningful. Innovation is conceived in relating to history and tradition. School methodology builds on knowledge and research and place emphasis on sensory perception and experimentation – a union of hand and spirit, head and hands.

Design School Kolding has university status and provides a framework for a number of recognised researchers in a young field of research as well as an increasing output of PhD projects. Emphasis is placed on putting design into practice reflected in the school's good workshop facilities where students can work with their material in a 1:1 scale. It is important to the school that its in-house teachers practice what they teach and the school makes use of a large number of guest teachers to ensure inspiration from professional practice.
