Transform your competencies into concrete products

In the 1st semester, you will learn how to integrate different technologies in relation to the needs of various companies – as well as how to document integration. You’ll learn to develop new products and optimise existing solutions, for example with user involvement. There is also teaching in innovation, where you will experience a more experimental approach to development. You’ll get practical knowledge about prototyping and visualisation through the use of virtual and augmented reality, for example. With new tools and methods, you will be able to plan and manage the technical part of a development project.

We will also visit relevant cooperation partners. The semester ends with a project where you need to test your new knowledge by working with a specific challenge.  

Sustainable and innovative product development in practice 

In the second semester, we put innovation and product development in the social and environmental context. We look at how to plan and project sustainable innovation. You will gain knowledge about life cycle analysis, the UN's global goals, sustainable design and product development and circular economy.

At the end of the semester, you need to prepare an innovative and sustainable project where you produce a product or establish process improvement.

Internship and Bachelor project

In the 3rd semester, you will get new competencies within integration, innovation and product development in the ‘real world’ as you will do your 10-week internship. To complete your programme, you must write a Bachelor project.

Teaching methods

This programme is multi-disciplinary and crosses programme boundaries, which improves and expands your own academic platform while at the same time gives you insight into the academic sphere of other professions. This provides you with excellent qualifications that you can apply directly to work processes when developing and building technological systems and products.
