Intro
The creative activity of the internationally renowned architect Peter Behrens (1868-1940) was exemplary for the role of the modern, holistic designer. As the director of the School of Arts and Crafts, which in 1971 became the department of architecture and design of the University of Applied Sciences Düsseldorf, he fundamentally reformed the design education. His way of thinking and working is still exemplary for todays teaching and research in Düsseldorf.
 
We see and explore, conceive, feel, understand, analyse and experiment, inspire, examine, shape, desire and touch.
 
Objects, jewellery and products are at the centre of our teaching. The study programme New Craft Object Design investigates societal aspects and issues; it stimulates your interest in innovate solutions. We are into matter and do not only look at the surface. Supervised by our teaching staff, you study material culture in the context of societal developments. Our design processes evolve from theoretical questions. They include the analysis of the role of the designer in current and changing circumstances.
 
Our teaching reflects an openness towards all orientations of art and design. The variety of courses offered is broad. The resulting designs range from applied to creative. We encourage lateral thinking and an open exchange between different fields of design. You discuss analyses, innovative concepts, production methods and creative experiments and use your insights to design individual pieces or products. We consider both of these fields equally important.
 
The study programme focuses on the interface of a technical and creative education. We see great potential in the combination of both aspects – creative and technological knowledge. Our students contribute diverse expertise thanks to their previous experience from various vocational fields. You learn to master new technologies and various practices competently and confidently. The programme teaches you to apply and combine them creatively and professionally. You visualise your ideas in experimental work using analogue techniques and digital technologies; intellectual research consolidates your concepts. All courses welcome object, jewellery and product design. Discover your preferences and strengths, find out what fascinates you and set your own area of specialisation accordingly. Our motto is #HandsOn – regarding not only ecological, economic and societal issues, but also actual practical work in our studios, workshops and laboratories at our university. Our students are hand-on workers researching new fields with a special feel for material, form and content. The analogue merges with the digital. Classical techniques and software provide options for new interactions. At the end of the day, you produce new, extraordinary objects for use – tailored to the individual, the wearer and the user.
 
The Faculty of Design at the Peter Behrens School of Arts, University of Applied Sciences Düsseldorf trains students in the bachelor‘s and master‘s programmes Communication Design, New Craft Object Design and Retail Design and provides practice-oriented, creative
and conceptual training.
 
Career Options
The broad variety of options offered and creative competences taught in the study programme lead to equally broad career prospects and fields of activity. As a graduate, you can work in product and jewellery design, design services, technical laboratories, the manufacturing industry, self-employment, start-up centres or you can start your own business. Having gained practical experience in one of the fields, you could also start teaching.
