|Description:||The two-year Master of Design program allows students to broaden their knowledge of design in the fields of visual communication, the built environment, interaction design and design studies. The MDes program provides a creative environment in which students are encouraged to explore conceptual and theoretical issues through project-based academic research.
The program focuses on sustainability (ecological, social, and economic) as a philosophy fundamental to the future of design theory and practice. We also recognize the importance of sensorial and cognitive investigation in design. In parallel with the theory and methods seminars, the students develop their research through a creative project.
