Product Design (BPD)

Study product design in Hanover

Product designers design the things in our everyday lives: Product design mediates between people and things. Studying design means taking an interest in a wide range of things and preparing for a variety of career options. This requires specialists with sound knowledge in many areas. Cultural curiosity, spatial imagination and interconnected thinking skills are just as important as confidence in dealing with materials, colour and signs.
