Do you want to transform products and systems to achieve greater sustainability? Sustainable Design is a two-year master’s programme (120 ECTS credits) which focuses particularly on design and development of sustainable solutions. The challenge of sustainable design is to develop products and networks, which can transform systems of consumption and production to be more sustainable.
The master’s programme in Sustainable Design combines sustainable product design with tools from innovation theory, practice theory and user-oriented design. Visualisation and experimentation are important strategies to develop new innovative solutions, which can overcome system dependencies and achieve sustainable system transformation in various societal sectors.
You engage in challenging design-oriented problem solving in collaboration with NGO´s, companies, public institutions and professional groups. Perhaps you design and develop future relief tents, robot vacuum cleaners or bike airbags. You can also work with rehabilitation of older, energy-efficient mobility or waste systems in cities.
