Product Design in Genk

Academische Bachelor / Exchange Programme

Our degree stands for academic education and research in the field of Product Design with a critical and visionary view on society. The Product Design program aims to encourage its students and teachers to respond to a rapidly changing society based on their own identity, in which product designers can make a difference.

We offer the interesting design modules for international students, depending on the chosen Semester. The design modules are theme directed. The design assignments are contextualized within a particular theme that poses a Contemporary Design Challenge. This gives students insight into how design shapes a world in change and what the designer's role can be in this.

We welcome Erasmus exchange students starting from 3rd bachelor level in both Semesters and even for a full year.
