This specialization belongs to the master's programme Industrial Design Engineering.
When launching new products, it is essential to progress through the product development stages quickly and efficiently, from initial concept through to finished product.
In this specialization, you will learn to effectively manage the product creation process and to communicate with a variety of target groups, both internal and external (i.e. clients and suppliers).
While the product development manager is not always directly involved in a product's design, he or she needs to be aware of various design techniques in order to successfully lead multi-disciplinary design teams. This may include generating a product development plan, drafting recommendations for the organization of a product’s development, organizing a feasibility study and optimizing a product’s life cycle.
