The objective of the programme is to expand the student’s understanding of specific ceramic materials and working processes on the basis of their own chosen specialisation, and further to support the development of their personal artistic profile under the guidance of the programme’s teachers.
There are options for individual specialisation in each main category of the Master’s degree programme:
- Ceramics, glass and related materials in the context of commercial product design, e.g tableware, sanitary ware, home accessories, etc.
