With faculties and areas of study such as Architecture and Urbanism, Civil Engineering, Art and Design and Media, the Bauhaus Universität Weimar has a distinctive identity. Today the University offers an extensive spectrum of instruction with about 40 courses of study, including fine art, design, visual communication, media design, media studies, computer scinence and media, architecture, civil engineering, materials science, processing technology, environment and management. The term »Bauhaus« stands for an eagerness to experiment, openness, creativity and internationality.

The Faculty of Art and Design at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar represents the Art Academy of Thuringia. Its responsibilities and tasks as an art college significantly influence the profile of the faculty, which is firmly manifested in the structure of the Weimar Model: connecting project work, the principal form of instruction, with well-equipped workshops and collaboration with other disciplines. This overlap of praxis and theory plays a particularly significant role in Weimar.

Product Design at Bauhaus Universität Weimar

The areas of Product Design are as diverse as the world of objects around us. Products can be created by hand or manufactured industrially in serial production. They can be the result of digitalized drafting, planning and production processes, and to an increasing degree, a combination of several methods.

The four professors responsible for the Product Design degree programme do not teach the disciplines of product design in the traditional sense. Instead they initiate and supervise projects which focus on a variety of areas, such as industrial or hand-crafted product design, interaction design, design and management, mobility, product and environment, stage design and exhibition design.
