The main goal of the Muthesius University in Kiel is to promote art, design and spatial strategies via research and development projects as a focal point for work and intellectual debates. As the only art university in the State of Schleswig-Holstein, the Muthesius is not only a place to develop culturally relevant biographies but with its project studies also a place of particular experimentation and realisation. To a certain extent, the profile of the Master’s programme represents study courses and development possibilities for students unique in the Federal Republic of Germany.

Study programme Industrial Design

During their studies, aspiring industrial designers develop products and concepts that – in addition to the variety of forms – are socially responsible, ecologically sensible and future-oriented. Analysis and problem identification in design teaching.

Sustainability Design Lab

In order to focus on the subject of sustainability, the Muthesius Academy of Fine Arts and Design has established a new workspace where a sustainable future is envisioned and designed: the Sustainability Design Lab. The alumnae and alumni of the Muthesius Academy, selected by a jury of experts, implement their design projects to advance innovative sustainability projects. The Sustainability Design Lab is funded by the EU Regional Development Fund – through the European Union’s REACT-EU development grant.
