Industrial design
courses ranging
from 5 weeks to
a full year


Umeå Institute of Design offers one one-year course and a number of single subject courses in industrial design and related areas.

Single Subject Courses (Fristående kurser)

Umeå Institute of Design offers several five- or ten-week courses within the subject area of industrial design to provide for different student categories to broaden their skills through design methodology, and to specialise within the design field. Design methodology for areas such as problem analysis, generating ideas, visualising and presenting can be applied to a broad set of contexts and areas, and are often helpful in other areas than design as well. To these courses, applications are made through, and work samples are not required byUID. 

Artistic Foundation in Design (in Swedish)

'Artistic Foundation in Design' is an introduction into the artistic, creative and practical aspects of the design subject. The studies are mainly carreid out in project form where theory and practice are combined. The course package is open to anyone with basic qualifications and ends in the autumn to be compatible with applying for further educations in e.g. industrial design, graphic design and architecture.
