Why Study IT Product Design?

Are you interested in intelligent products and how they affect people in the future?
The master programme in IT Product Design pushes the envelope of how we can innovate new solutions by engaging the people involved.  Intelligent products change the way people work and play. To facilitate sustainable change requires empathy and responsibility from the people who are designing them. It requires skills of critical judgment and an open-minded attitude as well as competencies beyond traditional engineering and computer science. It also requires engagement in multidisciplinary teams to develop successful products and services that benefit the world.

Who are we?

IT Product Design is part of the design environment at SDU’s campus in Kolding where research and teaching are closely connected. The researchers combine interaction design, embodied technology, participatory innovation, design anthropology, applied theatre, video and co-design. As a student you get a chance to work alongside researchers to experiment with new methods, designs and processes.

Diverse and multidisciplinary

Every year, 40 new students are accepted from countries all over the world. Their backgrounds cover a wide range of educations, career paths and professions, such as design and art, anthropology, business, communication, computing, engineering, health and beyond!
