Are you looking to shape tomorrow’s society and the design of 21st-century products, services, and systems? The Aalto Bachelor’s Programme in Design is an international degree program to prepare you for a future working creatively with physical and digital media while building a rich portfolio of work addressing commercial and societal challenges and developments in the private, public, and cultural sectors. In preparing for life after graduation, you will also have an opportunity to carve out an identity and locate a professional niche for yourself as a designer, either working with clients independently as a design consultant or as a member of a team within a larger organization. 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 the skills and knowledge to design with complexity and uncertainty, as well as to prototype ideas and materialize 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, new technologies, and 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-centered, societally relevant, and environmentally conscious. As a student in the program, you will study in English together with an international group of students and faculty. Twenty students are admitted to the program each year. The curriculum is student-centered 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 programs of the university.
