The curriculum of the Degree Program in Design is a knowledge-based. It is divided into the studies of the University of Applied Sciences, core requirement studies of the degree program and professional studies. The professional studies include courses in e.g. 3D animation and visualization, digital design, interior architecture, industrial design, textile design, visual communication design and XR design. The professional orientation is selected at the application stage. The professional studies also entail collaboration projects with business and industry. In addition, the studies consist of a work placement, elective studies and finally the Bachelor’s thesis.
The curriculum has been developed in co-operation with partners in business and industry and the students to meet the future requirements in the field of design and to incorporate comprehensive design thinking and its use in multi-disciplinary collaboration. The curriculum is based on the following aspects: mastering sustainable design, user-centered design, production and technology, design process, visual arts as well as developing skills in service design and building one´s professional identity.
The learning outcomes of the degree are grounded on the mastery of sustainable design, production and technology, the design process, visual and user-centred design and on the building of professional identity and service design skills.
Completion of the degree programme will enable students to work as service designers, designers, visualizers, interior designers, industrial designers, concept artists, compositors, user interface designers and usability experts, textile designers and other versatile experts in design and media.
