Department of Product Design
Design + technology
If Norwegian industry is to succeed in global markets, it must develop products that are engaging, useful, ecologically responsible, and that are unique or distinct in the marketplace. Our advanced engineering programmes combine expertise, insight and work methodology from both design and techology. The programme of study is the oldest of its kind in Scandinavia.
Through a number of commercial and altruistic services and programs, companies and individuals can make use of both staff and student expertise, as well as of the department's facilities and tools. Contact us for more information.
