Study Product Development

Studying Product Development in Aalto University

One of our main goal is to inform about the study opportunities product development at Aalto University.

There are annually ca. 40 different courses from all schools of Aalto University arranged at Aalto Design Factory. However, some of the courses and projects are more engaged and visible in the everyday life of ADF than others. These courses are most present, night and day.

PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT PROJECT is aimed at students interested in developing new products, solutions or consumer goods. The problems are given and sponsored by both domestic and foreign industrial companies, who are searching for innovative cooperation with the next generation of product developers. Over the recent years students have also pursued their own projects and startup ideas in PDP.

Global Team-Based Design Innovation Course. The ME310 experience is like no other. In fact, it’s more of a lifestyle. Through learning-by-doing, students are solving real-life innovation problems with corporate partners, all while surrounded and supported by a close-knit group of course mates, teaching staff, coaches and 310 alumni. The course has been developed at Stanford University to teach the methodologies of Design Thinking.

International Design Business Management is educating global producers and leaders of innovation in new product, service and business development. The program builds on the premise that new wealth, meaningful social innovation and solutions are increasingly created in the spaces between disciplines and thus there is a need to educate interdisciplinary professionals.

Aaltonaut is a new Bachelor’s Degree Minor Studies Programme in Interdisciplinary Product Development.
