The master at a glance
|Recognized Title||Academic Master’s Degree|
A good product began as a need that a designer identified and brought to life in the form of an object or mechanism. It is a reflection of society. It is about potentiality, adaptation, discovery.
The Master in Product Design program combines the study of theory with the process of direct experience. Besides honing the “problem solving” skills that every designer needs, you will also develop a “problem defining” approach: the ability to determine the true parameters of each design challenge. As you learn to follow your intuition and promote your aesthetic vision within those parameters, you will cultivate more awareness of the reasons behind your own design choices, and those of others.
During your workshop collaborations with eminent professionals from local studios and businesses, you will have the range to experiment with design methodologies as you develop a deeper understanding of product design and its role in our world.
The program is designed for candidates who have a first-level degree in design, architecture, engineering, visual arts, or related disciplines.
During this degree program, students will:
• Complete a self-driven conceptual research project according to professional standards.
• Create innovative design work based on an understanding of the discipline and the place of their work within that context.
• Communicate concepts, methods, and design proposals in spoken, visual, and written form.
