Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course intends to fully integrate the industrial design process with the detail design process at an advanced level. In the development project that the students carry out in collaboration with an external employer, the different parts in respective process should be tied together to a detailed and well functioning whole. The project work has either industrial or research oriented connection and it is carried out in groups. The course has a clear focus on technology, where employers are chosen that can offer project of a high technical complexity. The challenge for the students is to create solutions where the technical requirements are met, while the design is of good quality.

Intended learning outcomes

On completion of the course, the students should to pass E show that they can;

1. plan a technical complex development project together with an employer. *
2. by means of design methods adapt the product development process based on an end users and consumer perspective. *
3. adapt presentation and communication technique to the current employer and project. *

For higher grades A-D, the students should furthermore show that they can;
4. choose methods strategically for and carry out the design process in the given product development project systematically.
5. choose methods strategically for and carry out a technically challenging design process systematically.
6. critically analyse the interplay between the industrial design process and the detail design process.
7. discuss the contribution of proposed solutions to sustainable development

* Intended learning outcomes that only have grading criteria for F and E. E is required for final mark in the course.

Examination and completion

If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.

Grading scale

A, B, C, D, E, FX, F


  • PRO1 - Project, 6,0 hp, betygsskala: P, F
  • PRO2 - Project, 6,0 hp, betygsskala: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F

Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.

The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.

The examination is based on the student's active participation in group projects, the quality on submitted assignments (both individual and in groups) and written assignments as for instance peer review.
The final mark for the whole course is A, B, C, D, E, FX, F. The final mark is based on a weighted and combined assessment of the student's achievement of the different intended learning outcomes. Outcomes-based grading criteria will be communicated to the students at the beginning of the course.

Other requirements for final grade

To pass the course, 80% attendance in seminars and participation in the project work in an extent that corresponds to the size of the course are required.

Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
