Since 1878 designers are trained in the Westphalian Münster. Thereby our department can look back at a long and good tradition. Nonetheless, present requirements of the profession as a designer exceed the former arts and crafts teaching of a "drawing, painting and sculpting school".
Here in Münster, the most liveable city of the world, we offer a contemporary and future-oriented education within the Bachelor-Master-system. The students acquire all methodical, technical and creative competences, which qualify perfectly for the professional practice: They are supposed to be trained as critically thinking designers.
The attractive new building on the Leonardo-Campus in Münsters North, into which the department of design moved in 2009, improves the working conditions of the students and teachers significantly. The technical features of the workshops, new photo and film studios, spaces for working groups and flexibly usable seminar rooms offer the chance to work independently at the academy.
Benefit from the ideal study conditions at the Münster University of Applied Sciences: We established a reputation of an excellent teaching which kept pace with the times and connect highest standards with a pleasant work environment.
