Program Description

The Master’s programme in Industrial Design focuses on three themes: Living and Behaviour, Form and Technology, or Man and Nature. The programme consists of individual industrial design projects, workshops and additional theo­retical courses.

You will participate in and contribute to the creation of knowledge within the field of design. By organising exhibi­tions, seminars and workshops, you will communicate your work and participate in the public debate. The School of Industrial Design offers you a creative environment with excellent workshop facilities. As part of a full-scale univer­sity, we can offer great opportunities for a multidiscipli­nary approach through cooperation with other faculties. Students will become authorities in their chosen subject, whether in their conceptually creative, strategic or technical capacity. Above all, the Master’s programme in Industrial Design encourages the in-depth debate and deliberation of the discipline.

Study trips

Study trips and exhibitions forms a natural part of the Master's programme in Industrial Design. Except for an introduction study tour in the start of the programme, all trips are optional. If a student is unable to participate in the optional activities, alternative assignments in Lund will be given.

  • Introduction study tour 4 days (mandatory) - takes place during study week 1.
  • Study tour NASA, Houston U.S. 2 weeks (optional) - normally during the third semester as part of one of the industrial design projects.
  • Exhibitions (optional) - normally three exhibitions outside Lund during year 1 or 2: Exhibition DMY (Berlin), Stockholm Furniture Fair (Sweden) and Milano Fair (Italy).

Please note: Field trips may be subject to cancellation/alteration due to unforeseeable circumstances, such as natural disasters and/or visa denial.

On completion of the Master’s degree in Industrial Design, you will be well-prepared to continue these discussions in whatever capacity you choose to work, be it designer, entre­preneur, design coordinator, manager or researcher, in the public or private sectors, in a team or as an individual.
