Aims and Objectives

The purpose of this program is to provide an interdisciplinary curriculum for the integrated study of design along the needs of Kosovar society. The graduate of this study program will acquire all the knowledge and competences in art and design, structures, materials, information technology and social sciences. Through this program, students will gain an efficient and qualitative scientific professional base. This includes the development of creative problem solving skills, the development of critical thinking and teamwork skills necessary for professional design work.


Studies in the Bachelor in Integrated Design focus on innovation and integration in art and design, with the premise that design advocacy is an agent for social change. Built around a unique sequence of project-based collaboration, the program equips students to create and explore new avenues in art and design while addressing today’s social and environmental challenges. Graduates from this program are prepared to enter a variety of design careers or pursue advanced design studies.


Graduates from the Integrated Design program find career paths in a wide range of creative industries, not only in design and project studios, but also in other fields such as: Television, Museums, art galleries, Magazines, teaching, individual projects and group, and not only.

The curriculum integrates multiple disciplines through an interdisciplinary approach that aims to introduce a process-oriented order. Students have opportunities to explore social issues while building capacity to draw connections through design. The curriculum includes education in the fundamental principles of visual organization and communication design along with cutting-edge work in design-led research and development. Design through the integration of information technology and mechanical engineering aims to introduce students to additional design tools and platforms.


Students develop visual skills starting in first year subjects; then those of the second year which focus on strengthening the students’ skills in designing the web, sound, video and communication in two dimensions, mainly using the relevant Adobe Creative Suite programs such as WordPress, Adobe Premiere and various applications of recommended. Critical thinking and writing skills are developed through the liberal arts components of the curriculum, and reinforced throughout the majors.

Almost all of these courses include theory (such as project statements) as part of the work required for student assessment. Students are often asked to present their ideas and arguments to peers, professors, industry guests, giving them the opportunity to improve their verbal presentation, public speaking and speaking, as well as handling criticism and debate in the context of advancing an argument. 


Upon successful completion of the program, the student will be able to:


– Acquire skills to solve design problems, including problem identification skills, research and information gathering, analysis, generation of alternative solutions, prototyping, and evaluation of results;

– Acquire skills to describe and respond to the clients and contexts that the relevant design choice must address, including recognizing the human physical, cognitive, cultural and social factors that shape design decisions;
