Do you want to push design into new areas? Are you interested in
how design can be connected to new frontiers?
In the past ten years, technology has expanded and given
designers and students alike new tools to work with. This has
created opportunities for designers to engage in finding solutions
for many social and environment issues that have become evident
today. Design Connections is a course that brings opportunities for
students who want to be prepared not only for the professional
design world, but also for working with design tools in wider areas
than the traditional design arenas. Graduates from Design
Connections will have perfected their competencies with the aim of
working in leading and strategic positions, as senior designers or
on management level in companies or organisations.
Design Connections provides tools for designers to be effective
in communicating industrial design competencies in different
contexts. As the field industrial design evolves and moves to
challenge issues in complex areas of social structures, students as
designers must be prepared with the knowledge of how the design
process relates to other business and societal processes. As
industrial designers are moving into new professional fields such
as large government and health care organisations, where industrial
design has not been applied before, the role of the industrial
designer also evolves, placing even more emphasis on the designers'
ability to work with communicative skills, convincing strategies
and clear visuals on various strategic levels.
