Bachelor's Programme in Design

Bachelor's Programme in Design

The curriculum embraces the expanding nature of design and the power of designers to locate opportunities and creatively craft possibilities. Throughout your three years of study, you will develop skills and knowledge to design with complexity and uncertainty as well as to prototype ideas and materialise solutions. You will learn to use contemporary tools, methods and processes for design as well as develop practices for acquiring new skills in the future. You will also learn to make more informed and responsible decisions as a designer through studies in business, with new technologies and in regards to sustainability. Building on the ethos of Finnish and Scandinavian design, you will learn to work in teams and co-create with others to develop solutions that are more human-centred, societally relevant and environmentally conscious.

As a student in the programme, you will study in English together with an international group of students and faculty. Twenty students are admitted to the programme each year. The curriculum is student-centred and allows you to tailor your degree through elective studies and studios, as well as collaborate on projects with a small group of peers. As a student at Aalto University, you will also be able to expand on the content of your degree by pursuing more in-depth studies in other disciplines at the other schools and programmes of the university.

Content of the studies

The curriculum for the programme is structured to help you acquire a rich understanding about the role and functioning of design in society, while furthering your expertise and knowledge of design in different areas. At the School of Arts, Design and Architecture, you will have access to world-class studios and workshops for production of both physical (including workshops for textiles, metal and wood) and digital (including equipment for 3d printing, electronics and web) projects. Working in these facilities, you will develop hands-on expertise in designing and learn contemporary tools and processes for working with different types of material.

Through projects and courses, you will also develop your skills in working and facilitating others in collaboratively developing solutions, exploring problems and forming opportunities. Building on the world-class research in design and media at the School of Arts, Design and Architecture, you will also have an opportunity to work and experiment with cutting-edge tools and methods for design as well as experience how to conduct research in design.

Understanding – and being able to operate within – the broader societal and industrial context for design forms an important part in preparing you for a changing future and in developing your ability to work with others and impact the environment around you. Much of the curriculum is structured so that theory and practice inform and strengthen each other. You will learn to analyse and explicate the meaning of design for users, for business, for society and for environment. You will also learn to identify and develop a personal specialisation within design in relation to industry and societal developments. Courses and studios are grounded in a combination of hands-on design work, lectures, seminars, workshops, group projects and self-studies.

Studio courses in which you creatively and critically explore contemporary phenomena in design projects run throughout the curriculum. These studios – together with your bachelor’s thesis – provide you opportunities to develop expertise in specific areas of design as well as to inquire into topics of interest to companies, non-profits and governmental organisations.
