Main Focus

Main Fokus:

  • BA: Digital Design Process – The specific technical subjects making up the course of study are based on the classic content of an engineering degree. The design-specific modules focus on design theory, methodical working, representation technology and computer-aided design techniques. The main emphasis of the study course lies in the interdisciplinary interplay between design and technology and is communicated through intensively supported projects.
  • MA: Management – The Master Design Leadership is about how to use the mindset, tools, techniques, and methods of design and designers to shape the practice of leadership. The programme is fully taught in English and welcomes both German and international students. It is designed as an interdisciplinary programme at the interface of design, economy and technology.
