Mediendesign Student Studio

Whether in the creative sector, in urban planning or in industry: design and creation run through all areas of life. Well thought-out design is something you can learn. At RWU, for example.

The topic of design plays a role in two different fields of study: On the one hand, in the Media Design program. On the other hand, in Mechanical Engineering you can choose Engineering Design, where you learn to design the products of tomorrow.

  • Testimonial Design Atil
    The Media Design program at RWU is a Bachelor of Science. That's unusual. But it's the perfect combination of technology and creativity for me. Lots of practice, lots of contacts and even start-up support - ideal for my plans to become self-employed with app developments.
  • Testimonial Design Knobel
    For me, Engineering Design combines the creative with the logical and structured. Both fields complement each other perfectly, as you not only gain a wide range of important skills, but also a more diverse field of work. So you can work in traditional mechanical engineering fields, in product development or even in industrial design. My personal goal is the connection between design and technical implementation in the automotive industry.
  • Testimonial Design Heissmann
    The conditions here are sensational. Computers, software, cameras, plotters, whatever your heart desires is here. On the other hand, I always say: You can also take cool photos with an old cam. What good is all this technology without creativity? And what good is creativity without good colleagues? Here I have found all three things.
