The master’s thesis is the final test in the Industrial Design programme. In their thesis, the candidates are given the opportunity to show that they are able to use the knowledge and skills which they have acquired through their studies to complete an independent development or research work. The thesis is completed at the Department of Product Design.
The thesis may be formulated within 3 main categories:
- Practical (design project)
- Theoretical (specialization project)
- A combination of these. The submitted material must include sufficient documentation of results and the working process.
The Department of Product Design arranges a master’s thesis exhibition usually the 3rd week in January, where all master’s theses are presented. When handing in their thesis, the candidates will present their projects for sensors and partners. This presentation is part of the examination result basis.
