Surface Design student at School of Engineering, Jönköping University - Campus i12 Eksjö


Thanassis Psaris

The program covers two years and I graduate as Surface Designer / Digital Modeler in June 2016.

As a Surface Designer I will be the link between designers and engineers.

I will take various inputs from industrial designers, like concept sketches, curves, or rough 3D models and translate them into refined digital

3D models.

Educational focus is on CAD, 3D modeling, industrial design, product development and manufacturing.

During the education, I will obtain expertise in Class-A surfacing and concept modeling in software like Alias Autostudio and Catia V5.


Background and experience

I have a background in the graphic arts industry, from various professional roles in advertising, education and

web design. Lately I have been in the retail automotive sector, thanks to my lifelong interest in cars.

I have always had a great passion for product design and engineering and I have now decided to fulfill my dream.

I also have project management experience in various positions with budgetary and staff responsibility, both as an employee and from running my own business.


Further details about my previous professional experience and training can be found in my resume.


Personal qualities

I am driven, methodical and analytical. I am quality oriented and I take great responsibility and pride in my work.

I am a creative problem solver and I pay attention to details. My outgoing personality and positive attitude gives me great pleasure in collaborating with others. I find it easy to establish good relations and I become quickly an appreciated member of the team. I have great communication skills and I feel comfortable expressing myself both verbally, visually and in writing.



The second academic year includes two internships of ten weeks each and a graduation project of five weeks.

I have been accepted by Volvo Design for both internship periods, with a position in the interior modeling group.
