Designing a product today means first understanding the potential market and the social context within which that product is placed. The Master’s program in Industrial Design offers a comprehensive educational experience that starts from concept to finish, from physical and digital representation to the way the product is told and communicated.

The Master in Industrial Design focuses on the user experience and the broader meaning of the product, because it is important for the designer to fully understand the impact a product will have socially and environmentally.

We offer students an interdisciplinary learning method, encouraging the emergence of their cultural values and emphasizing the role of dialogue and mutual exchange during the creative process.
