Finland's First Vehicle Designers Graduated
We call ourselves STANCE here at Finland's first and only full-time automotive design degree course. 2015 is our inaugural graduation year, and after four years studying and practising professional vehicle design, we were very proud to present our group of pioneering graduates. They displayed wide-ranging design proposals based on their own independent research. You can find out a little more about our course at our official blog or Facebook page StanceLAMK.
General information about Institute of Design and Fine Art (in English)
Institute of Design has long had a connection with the automotive design world, with previous graduates of Industrial Design choosing to specialise in that field. Graduates in the past have taken further studies at for example RCA London, and many work in the automotive design industry. Lahti alumni can be found in car studios such as Skoda, Toyota, Ford, Tesla and more around the world. In 2011 this established connection with the industry inspired us to begin teaching a full-time dedicated Vehicle Design bachelors degree course. It is currently the only course of it's kind in Finland.
