About us

The aim of the four-semester Digital Craft undergraduate program is to teach the practice of contemporary digital technologies in innovative object creation. The knowledge of traditional material and form characteristic of object creation combined with the use of new technologies and with the methodology of creative design prepares students for the increasingly complex contemporary design tasks.

  • traditional material handling knowledge (metal, ceramic, glass)
  • use of 2D / 3D modeling and parametric design software and learn about the innovative technological possibilities of digital object creation (3D Printing, 3D Scaning, Laser Cutting, CNC Milling, Electronical Prototyping)
  • Design Thinking Design Methodology, Creative Design and Critical Approach Methodology for Innovation, Science or Applied Design Solutions

Through their training, students’ professional background enables them to provide creative answers to the challenges of contemporary digital culture, society, the market economy, and the environment, either independently or in collaboration with fellow professions. They get prepared to pursue their studies in a master’s degree and learn about the possibilities and practices of innovation-oriented digital and analog object-making tools. In their professional life, they will be able to learn about the newest emerging technologies independently, to expand the acquired digital knowledge in line with current contemporary trends.

Degree studies/Full time studies are fully in English for 2 years (=4 semesters) at the graduate (MA) level, in the areas of Animation MA, Photography MA, Vehicle Design MA only.
