This specialization belongs to the master's programme Industrial Design Engineering.
Many theoretical breakthroughs and new technological principles are rarely applied because nobody translates them into a product or application.
In this specialization you will learn how to bring new and state-of-the-art technologies to the consumer market instead of introducing a technology for a single, specific product.
This can turn an expensive technology with a limited field of applicability into a more affordable option as it makes the transition to mass production. Consumer products can also be modified and new products brought to market thanks to new, highly advanced technologies (e.g. fuel cells) or technologies that make it possible to produce new shapes (e.g. hydroforming) or technologies that reduce the cost of production (e.g. composite materials that result in fewer parts). Another goal of this specialization is to reduce the distance between the research environment, industry and the market.
This specialization will train you to be an industrial designer with a solid background in cutting-edge technologies.
