ID-A Workshops

About the department's workshops

The workshops are intended for our programs in Architecture, Industrial Design, Product Development and Technical Design. We train students in processes, methods and equipment handling so they can realize their thoughts and ideas in courses, projects and degree projects. We have both traditional workshop equipment as well as modern equipment available for use, such as CNC machines, laser cutters and 3D printers.

IKDC has metal workshops available, and the A-building houses a full carpentry workshop. Adjacent premises house access to a variety of equipment, including laser cutting, water cutting, welding, forming and working with sheet metal, painting, vacuum forming, ceramics, clay and sewing.

At present, there are 7 workshop teachers running the workshops, covering a wide range of manufacturing methods and processes. We work with most existing materials.
