The master's program offers students the opportunity to choose between two concentrations of work:

  • The master’s program “Material“ or „Style”, which builds on the bachelor’s program, offers students the opportunity to choose between two focal areas: „Material“ offering experimental or applied material research in the field of surface and textile design or „Style“ dealing with central stylistic aspects of design. 

  • The master’s program with a focus on „Material“ explores and challenges materials-based creative design practices from contemporary technological, cultural and aesthetic perspectives. On the other hand the master study course with a focus on „Style“ integrates a precise awareness of contemporary cultural trends into the design process and situates the work itself within the stimulating domain of personal identity and social processes.

  • Throughout the master program the student continues to systematically develop his / her own identity as a designer – both conceptually and practically – and implements that identity in a socially relevant, future-oriented practice-based master project.
