Inclusive design: Healthcare and social-well being.
A good design combines the designer’s creativity with technological possibilities. It must also fit into the cultural and social context. You will learn this holistic approach to the design process during the study programme in Inclusive Design: Health and Social Well-Being. The interdisciplinary studies will help you develop a bold attitude in defining and meeting design challenges. You will learn to experiment and to collaborate with the future recipients of your ideas: services, apps and objects. You will have three diploma studios to choose from: Industrial design, UX and digital product design, Social and service design.
