Interdisciplinary and holistic thinking is the ability to overcome one’s own limitations. This enables new perspectives and forward-looking ways of developing new ideas, optimised products, services or new spaces.
When solving complex problems, design is the central factor for innovation. Design is the link between users and the expert knowledge of interdisciplinary development teams. In a sense, design has empathic interface competence.
Innovation arises at the intersection of the three factors people, technology and economy. The necessity of change and innovation therefore, unites different disciplines and thus helps to create new perspectives. In the Master Design you will learn innovation competence – very close to practice. Being innovative today more than ever requires the ability to master complex processes. With us you will learn design as a living development process in a stimulating environment of creativity and excellence.
The Master Design stands for a holistic understanding of design and for new forms of collaboration between design, architecture, computer science, engineering disciplines and economic and social sciences. You will learn ways of thinking, working and proceeding, taking in the perspectives of various disciplines and thus gaining impetus for new approaches. In this way you will acquire a clear profile in the future fields of design and cooperation with related disciplines.
The Master Design is modular and allows you to study individually. Here you will find detailed information on our innovative teaching concept and on all questions concerning application and admission to the course.
