Are you ready to take the next step?

Want to know how to design your own products?

Develop your product design skills and become familiar with design practices such as Interaction design, Product-Service design and Sustainable design. In the exchange programme All-round Designer you will be challenged to apply and improve your product design knowledge by attending lectures, participating in workshops and working on relevant assignments for real clients. Your future client expects you to consider all the technical, human-interaction, social and commercial interests it takes to turn a new product idea into a market success. This all-round and integrated approach is what this programme is all about.
