Integrated Product Design (120 credits)
Integrated Product Design (IPD) is a two year graduate programme, focusing on processes and methods for product development in order to create innovative, usable, competitive and sustainable products and services. The programme has two different tracks.
In today’s fast-changing global market, engineers need advanced knowledge and highly developed skills in how to create competitive and sustainable products, services and business models. The master's programme in Integrated Product Design focuses on processes and methods for strategic product development and innovation in order to create usable, competitive and sustainable products and services and also dare to look beyond “business as usual” to support the transformation needed in society.
The master's programme in Integrated Product Design offers two specialisation tracks: Industrial Design Engineering and Innovation Management and Product Development. The programme comprises a mixture of mandatory courses, track-specific courses and elective courses offering students the opportunity to select courses that match their individual interests and career goals. During the programme, students will have contact with industry, and projects are often conducted in co-operation with a company or organisation, providing students with valuable experience from practice.
In the final degree project, students perform in-depth work on a problem from industry, society or academic research that is in line with the chosen specialisation. The degree project is supervised by an experienced researcher and can be performed in an industrial setting or in an academic environment.
The two-year programme (120 ECTS credits) is in English. Graduates are awarded a Master of Science degree. The programme is given mainly at the KTH Campus in Stockholm by KTH’s School of Industrial Engineering and Management.
