For more than 50 years Weißensee School of Art and Design fosters the synergetic relationship between art, design, and society through the interdisciplinary foundation year program that students of all courses of study complete together, as well as the theoretical courses that are closely linked to the project topics. The lively campus combines studios, laboratories and workshops and contributes to Berlin’s internationally well-connected research landscape in the fields of technology development, materials research and sustainability.

Study Programme Product Design
The BA program in product design enables future designers to act independently and responsibly in social, economic, cultural, technological and ecological terms. The program is organized in projects; the course topics offered provide the framework for students to develop their own questions. A wide range of analogue and digital techniques are trained to test concept ideas and develop convincing designs for the respective context.
The MA program in product design encourages students to further develop their own creative design position responsibly and with confidence, in order to confront complex design challenges in a comprehensive, strategic and sustainable manner. The MA program offers three perspectives on design: design and mobility; design and interaction; design and experiment.
