Product Design MA
4 semesters
120 credits

course director: Balázs Püspök

The programme aims at forming a professional approach to design and developing an intellectual – economically and socially conscious – attitude open to new ideas and critical thinking. The bachelor level training programme in Product Design provides students with basic professional practical skills and a theoretical background for designing an object or a service. The problem-oriented and research-based MA programme, however, offers training to meet the newest challenges of design and business in three specialisations: furniture design, product design and vehicle design. The MA programme in Product Design focuses on issues related to the economic, cultural and environmental aspects and interrelations of globalisation, the local and global questions of sustainability. Solutions are hiding in design research, in which it is the quality of approach, a more elevated and complex level of thinking that is fundamental and not the product or object itself. Thus, the objectives of the MA programme are design-ethical way of thinking, development of a local/global, social/cultural attitude along with the reinforcement of a sense of professional responsibility.
