Volkswagen Group Design has a long history of investing in and benefitting from young designers who have the chance to join the design teams of the group.

The Master programme embraces the entire design development process through research into new experiential concepts, the redefinition of architectural solutions and by moving forward with new criteria for comfort and efficiency.

It’s a long process that demands a high level of personal commitment and flexibility, organizational and time management skills as well as a strong attitude for teamwork.

Transportation designers thus acquire constant stimuli for innovation in terms of both form language and function, allied with the understanding of engineering and production processes.
