Was lernen Sie in diesem Kurs?
The official Degree in Product Design offers students a very solid base in product design and establishes the physical and functional characteristics necessary for a product to be industrially manufactured. The program is a projective, technological, creative exercise, whose purpose must be understood in its entirety, since it establishes the relationship between an object and its users, keeping in mind the emotional and physical needs that are linked to this relationship; it serves a social purpose, since its intervention conditions the quality of the environment and people’s lives, access to objects and sustainability as a culture of design, production and consumption; and it also reinforces companies’ strategic values.
The academics of the first year of the Degree in Product Design focus on the acquisition of basic design knowledge (color, drawing), culture (the history of art and design) and project methodology, all of which are essential in establishing the foundations of a competent professional capable of working in any of the different fields of design.
The second year’s academics probe further into knowledge that is essential for product designers, such as representation tools, production material and systems technology, among others, which are fundamental for strengthening students’ training in all areas of product design and production on a small industrial scale, or for the designer’s own or exclusive production.
The academics of the third and fourth years focus on students’ specializations as professionals in charge of conceptually and technically defining all the different parts that compose an object – designers capable of handling extensive project typologies due to the versatility of their spatial reasoning, creativity and other resources. They are also responsible for ensuring the proper application of socially- and environmentally-friendly design methods and production processes. The fourth year culminates in a final degree project, which is a reflection of the students’ training, and a professional job application letter.
This program has been recognized by the Autonomous Government of Madrid and the Spanish National Government as an official Degree in Product Design.
