DESIGN TEACHING - SUSTAINABLE PRODUCT DESIGN - DESIGN PROCESSES - HAPTIC PERCEPTION - DESIGN THEORY - ERGONOMICS - COMMUNICATION MANAGEMENT - MODEL CONSTRUCTION - 3D PRINTING - RAPID PROTOTYPING - DIGITAL MANUFACTURE - COLOUR AND LIGHT - DIGITAL DESIGN - DRAWING In the practical product design (BA) degree course, you shape things. What roles do operability, ecology, technology, aesthetics, economy, culture and material play? The benefits are always in focus because design makes products usable. In 30 design projects, you acquire creative and technical skills to develop and design sustainable products. Start designing from the third day of your studies, because practical experience in this field is indispensable. Different approaches to sustainability, the Design Thinking Model as well as other innovation processes provide suggestions during the conception phase - whereby all theoretical contents always refer to the current practical work. In each semester, emphasis is placed on different materials as well as different craft and industrial production processes. The creative industry demands flexible specialists who think sustainably. AMD uses its international network of cooperating companies, agencies and technical colleges and integrates exciting practical projects, interdisciplinary projects with other study programs, excursions, workshops and a practical semester. The one-semester project also prepares in a practice-oriented manner for the scope and depth of the Bachelor thesis. An optional semester abroad at a European or international university provides insights into the international design industry. Experience an intensive exchange with lecturers, professors and corporate partners. Do you already have ideas for starting a business during your studies? Start-up initiatives are keenly promoted at AMD and supported in the first steps towards self-employment.
