Industrial design alumni Mathias Bertram returns to the university after successfully founding a company and has held a professorship for Industrial Design.

Mathias Bertram studied industrial design at our university from 2000 to 2005. Following his studies, he founded the Magdeburg design company "faktor m", which creates product designs for industrial and consumer goods and has received several awards over the years, including the "reddot design award".

In 2022, he accepted a teaching position at the University of Applied Sciences for Digital Product Design and has held the professorship for Industrial Design - 3D Design with Digital Media since April 2023, after prevailing over several international applicants.

We congratulate Prof. Bertram on this success and look forward to him passing on the knowledge he has acquired at the university and in the corporate environment to our future designers.
