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.

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).
