The International Design Project Semester (IDPS) at Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences is a one-semester curriculum, jointly run in English by Industrial Design and Interaction Design lecturers. The program is established as a study abroad option for international undergraduate design students.
The course includes 30 ECTS credits. Two compulsory modules, „Project production“ and „Project experiment and trial“, are the central element of IDPS. You will encounter real-world design problems, to be solved in an interdisciplinary and international team of designers.
Additionally, you may choose optional modules within the Industrial Design curriculum (fixed module offer), or the Interaction Design curriculum (changing module offer) or even attend a mix of these courses to broaden your skills outside your original field of expertise.
Last, but not least you can join an optional German language course, where you will meet international students from other faculties and learn more about Germany and its culture.
Your main advantage: You may study for one semester in Germany without profound German knowledge.
Applications are welcome from all partner universities worldwide.
