This two-year master programme is based on companies’ needs for employees with the ability to initiate, lead, and promote the creation of innovations. The language of tuition is English.
In their work with innovations, students should balance the various parts of the process – function, design, durability, and conditions of production. This requires knowledge of, or interaction between, different disciplines where different perspectives and approaches are utilized. The programme is based on joint projects, often in collaboration with the industry and different organizations, along with advancement in their own subject area and a broadening towards other disciplines (business and design). Experiences from projects are discussed and put in relation to the student’s professional skills. In separate courses studied scientific method used in the innovation process.
General entry requirements for second-cycle studies and specific entry requirements:
