New Design University Privatuniversität GesmbH (AT), BA Design, Handwerk & materielle Kultur, MA Innenarchitektur & Visuelle Kommunikation


The Bachelor Degree Program Design, Handwerk & materielle Kultur deals with the question of how design and production are changing in the postindustrial era.

Georg Siegele’s diploma thesis Pets (2019) is a good example of the projects by students in this program. Based on artistic and scientific research, they investigate how our material world is changing and what role design plays in it. The New Design University St. Pölten is an international destination for quality education in the fields of design, technology and business, the New Design University trains creative thinkers who advance social change and explore tomorrow’s work and design practice today.
