The master’s program in Embedded Design at HDK-Valand - Academy of Art and Design encourages critical speculation on the role of design within diverse organisational contexts and meets growing demands for sustainable, innovative, and disruptive design. This entails embracing a holistic approach to design. It considers aesthetics alongside acknowledging the social, environmental, and economic impact of the solutions being developed. An Embedded Designer is a maker of change. Someone able to work as a collaborative partner while actively taking a critical stance and questioning the status quo. Whether pursuing traditional or unconventional paths, this program empowers young designers to shape the future of design with confidence and impact.
