UdK is one of the oldest Universities of the Arts, and houses schools for Fine Arts, Architecture, Media, Design, Music and Performing Arts.

Its origins lie in the years 1694/1696 as a Prussian art academy. The product and fashion design departments are located in the heart of Berlin at a common location. Renowned designers such as Nick Roericht and Andreas Brandolini have taught design at the UdK in the past. Former students of the UdK are among others: Burkhard Schmitz, Axel Kufus, Jasper Morrison, Oliver Vogt, Herman Weizenegger, Werner Aisslinger, Osko Deichmann, Lukas Wegwerth, Dirk Winkel, David Geckeler, Lisa Keller, Hanne Willmann and Philipp Weber.

Product Design at IPP

The Product Design program of today has a four year BA Course, a one year MA Course and intense exchange programs with (inter)nationally befriended colleges, institutions and companies. It offers strong and cutting edge knowledge transfers on Design & Art, Industrial Design & Technology, Cultural Science & Design Theory, Design Research and Design Practice.As Berlin University UdK Design is rooted in research with institutes such as Fraunhofer Institut and Max Plank Institut around its corner. However the Product Design department also houses the reknown Design Research Lab founded by Telekom Innovation Laboratories.

The Design Practice courses each have their own focus on a specific scope of design, but they all teach and empower the development of conceptual and autonomous design thinking to be applied in products and strategies for our future. During their studies students can choose to enroll these different Design Practice courses, thus developing their own attitudes and field of expertise.

Annually a grants program supports selected BA and MA graduates in establishing their practice after leaving the UdK.
