The degree programme in Design, major in Vehicle Design, focuses on the design of vehicles in private transport, and public passenger and freight transport. A vehicle designer can be involved in the design of the shape of vehicles, their control systems, parts, services, or other related products. A vehicle designer typically works on a product development team with professionals from other fields. Design categories include motor or human-powered vehicles that travel by water, air or land. The vehicles can be designed for use in leisure, commercial traffic, or public passenger or freight transport.

The studies focus on design processes, product development, usability, ergonomics, and the management of various visualisation and model-building techniques.

Vehicle design studies take the form of individual and group work, under the supervision of experts, in lectures or projects, to be realised in cooperation with companies in the field, when possible. To be successful in their profession, students need to have good visual expression, skills in visual perception, the ability to constantly look for new information, and the interaction skills to cooperate with experts in other fields. The studies provide the students with the knowledge and skills to work in other product design roles and to apply for further studies in the field.
