Overview

Since product design and development are considered transdisciplinary, they require profound knowledge of design methods, manufacturing tools, production processes, ergonomics, aesthetics and sustainability. Skills in these areas help to respond to market demands rapidly and produce justifiable and usable products on a competitive market.

This knowledge is needed at different stages of product development to meet the needs of industries, support product users, and respond to environmental issues. 

This Industrial Design Engineering programme from LUT University is a unique study opportunity in Finland, combining knowledge of and working methods in production engineering, industrial design and material development. It emphasises a combination of design skills and engineering qualifications through project courses in which students apply their knowledge to practice. Projects are carried out in close cooperation with Finnish and European industries. As a result, this programme is a popular major subject that has seen a rapid growth in applicant numbers nationally and internationally.  

The Master's Programme in Industrial Design Engineering employs massive open online courses (MOOCs), enabling students to complete nearly half of their studies remotely. The online courses and internet-based exercises are a flexible and dynamic way to complete studies.

The course applies a hybrid of online and contact teaching: nearly two thirds of the teaching sessions are conducted remotely online. The contact lessons are usually not mandatory, and teachers may provide teaching material to students online. Course presentations, seminar days, meetings and laboratory visits are agreed on flexibly with the lecturer in charge of the course.

Career prospects

The demand for industrial design engineering experts is growing due to new technological developments and their importance in the development of our society.

As a graduate of the programme, you will have diverse possibilities for a career in companies' design departments as an industrial designer, brand manager, product designer, production manager, design engineer, interaction designer or packaging designer, in research or even in a design firm of your own.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • In core studies, 33 ECTS credits, you will study research methods, product design and production process, selection of materials, applied mathematics and additive manufacturing.
