Design for Industry
- undergraduate (first-cycle) programme 3.5 years (7 semesters) in duration
leading to an inżynier qualification (bachelor’s degree)
– integrated manufacturing processes
– product design and development
Overview of the undergraduate (first-cycle) programme
Throughout this programme, students will gain a strong theoretical and practical background in industrial design so that they will be able to undertake and complete various engineering tasks including design of consumer and industrial products and development of prototypes, taking into account not only engineering but also aesthetic and economic factors. They will develop knowledge and skills useful in a variety of work environments, ranging from design studios, to R&D departments of large and medium-sized manufacturing companies, to small- and micro-businesses operating in the design and manufacturing sectors. They will also be prepared to start and run their own businesses or work as freelancers. On completion of the programme, students will be able to efficiently use computer hardware and software for design, prototyping and manufacturing, for visual communication, especially graphics creation, processing and presentation, and finally, for organisation and management of design-related tasks.
Apart from university-based practical classes, students of this programme take part in field trips to develop their drawing and team building skills. The trips are usually to Sandomierz, with students staying at the Kielce University of Technology Humanities and Architecture Centre.
Final design projects developed by our students for their undergraduate qualification include designs of furniture, functional everyday objects, urban and street furniture, machine tools (drills, 3D printers) and motorcycles; there have also been concepts of automotive facelifts and projects in the areas of computer graphics and visual communications.
For the best designs developed by students either as part of the coursework or as final projects for the inżynier qualification (bachelor’s degree), the University seeks national and international protection at the Polish Patent Office under intellectual property law so that they are registered as industrial or utility models (32 designs by our students protected as industrial models so far).
