The objective is to share the designer’s tools and approaches

The modules’ main purpose is to clarify what design is and to show how designers can play a major part in the various phases of product, interface and service development.

The aim is not so much to turn students into apprentice designers as to help them understand the design process better, so they can draw on it to think up original, innovative design methodologies or collaborate effectively with designers for their current or future projects.

To fulfill this need, we have designed several modules that alternate between theory classes (design history, current issues and professions) with practical exercises or group projects.
