The Transportation Design Programme gives the student competence
to work with design and development of different types of vehicles;
from bicycles and cars to public transportation means such as
trains, buses and aircrafts. This is the first course of its type
in the Nordic countries.
Students entering the Master's programme in Transportation
Design must have a basic understanding of designer tools together
with a competent level of sketching skill. They will develop their
creative thinking process with tutoring support focused on trying
to solve future transportation problems. Students will explore how
to design and develop vehicles of all types with a growing
awareness of the environmental issues.
Our students are encouraged to build realistic vehicle concepts
around future lifestyles. Equally, these designs must be attractive
and desirable. The essence of the student work will be about form
and function in balance with the human needs at the center of their
design development process.
International and Exchange Students
Teaching language is English and the course is open to
international students. Exchange students are accepted preferably
in the autumn term of the first year.
Field of Activities
The Transportation Design programme prepares students for
working in the industry. Students are frequently employed in major
corporations as well as design consultancies. We have a strong
background in both transportation design practice and education.
For this reason the quality of our education and the capabilities
of students graduating from our programme have been well
appreciated by the industry.
Many of our previous students have found a good position in the
industry and in consultancies. Among those companies are Volvo
Cars, Volvo Trucks, Saab Automobiles, Scania, BMWDesignworksUSA,
Renault Trucks, GM, Aston Martin, Volkswagen, Ferrari, Bentley,
Kiska and many more.
