Industrial Product Design (IPO) is a Bachelor Programme at Howest - Kortrijk (Belgium), UNESCO City or Design. Our ambition is to teach our students to design the right thing right. We aim to prepare our students for the real world by:
offering students real-life cases with clients and industry
stimulating entrepreneurship and start-ups
making each student a co-owner of their education program
learning a lot of hands-on prototyping techniques to have a realistic view on a concept or product.
Above anything else we want our students to apply design thinking to their own lives.
For companies our students are your source of creativity! Collaborate with our students during:
Our habitat is the Industrial Design Center (IDC). This the open knowledge center of Howest University of Applied Sciences and Ghent University where industry, research and education meet, make and co-create.
