Research

Our Department of Industrial Design is divided into three primary processes: education, research and management. The Department has four capacity groups, each representing one area of expertise:

Research and education are strongly intertwined. There are ten competency areas, including for example integrating technology, user focus and perspective, form and senses, and business process design. Teaching activities include projects, assignments, modules, expert meetings, personal coaching, showcase and portfolio development and of course assessment. We employ both university staff and design specialists from the professional field. The interaction with the professional world outside the Department is therefore well supported.
