Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

The advanced course is divided into practical and theoretical elements that overlap. Emphasis is placed on project work carried out in groups of up to three (four) participants. The project has either industrial or related research-oriented ties. The project will be performed with different elements of design process tied together.

During the course different methods are used to study user´s behaviour and their needs, ranging from surveys to focus groups and workshop methodology.

One of the courses consists of cooperation with other educational disciplines of economics and design. The aim of the operation is to give the students experience in group dynamics and the different roles that exist within the product.

The advanced course includes a workshop in various materials, technologies as well as in tribology and tactility.

The advanced course hold a seminar series where students in groups of four prepare, document and implement an all-day seminar for the students on the course.

Emphasis is placed on engineering-related skills such as design and technical skill.

Intended learning outcomes *

The student will after the course:

  • take practical and theoretical knowledge of the entire design process from design brief to evaluation of the finished product
  • use methods of user-driven design and how users can participate in the design process
  • understand and have experience from how technology, economics and industrial design is combined in a successful product realization project
  • be able to understand the design process from an industrial perspective, focusing on materials, technologies and production
  • be able understand the design process also from an end-user and consumer perspective
  • have experience from cooperation in a complex design project
  • applied skills in presentation and communication in actual projects
