Integrated Design

This integrated degree course in design combines the three subjects of Communication Design (2D), Product design (3D) and Media Design (4D). Students select their individual specialisation according to their own interests. They learn how to deal with all types of creative tools: graphics, typography, shape design, photography, film, audio and interactive tools. In different media, students learn how to combine and coordinate, i.e. integrate, the use of digital and technical design tools. The design programme is state-of-the-art and provides answers to the questions arising from the coexistence of all types of design today. Students are taught far-reaching design skills with a clear goal: solution strategies are required both for the course as well as in practice. Designers can work on a self-employed basis or as employees in design firms, advertising agencies, production companies, publishing houses, companies or private and public institutions.
