MSc Design, Linköping University Sweden accepting applications for fall 2020
Linköping University, Sweden
Deadline for application: January 15, 2020
Design as a discipline increasingly finds itself at the centre of innovation and change towards better and more sustainable futures. Design is now becoming integral in organisations, NGOs, businesses, public sector as well as policy development and governance to take on challenges that will define and make alternative futures possible. The purpose of this programme is to train qualified and confident designers who can enter these complex contexts, take on leading roles and co-create well-designed solutions and facilitate conditions that make change possible.
This interdisciplinary programme addresses multiple system levels and gives you the opportunity to critically examine current systems, institutions and norms. Societal challenges such as Food Waste, Repair, Civility and Nomadic Welfare form the backbone of the programme. These issues are explored together with stakeholders in the wider systemic context of the surrounding society.
At LiU we are leading in educating designers within three specialisations – service design, sustainable design and visual media design, with a world-class research team at the intersection between design and services, a state-of-the-art facility for visual media research, and a strong team devoted to design and sustainability.
