M.Design (Master of Design) Product Design

The program is an interactive learning experience. Teaching is by way of facilitation so as to develop critical thinking skills amongst the students. Core of the teaching is studio based, project oriented and blends lectures, tutorials, and intensive group discussions seamlessly to provide a practical, hands-on experience to the students. The teaching is highlighted by specially created assignments and team exercises. Guest lectures are regularly arranged to provide industry insights. A small class size creates opportunities for meaningful interactions with faculty and amongst peers.

Students begin by learning Design Methods. Within Design Methods, students gain a deeper understanding of designing as a problem solving activity in a specific context. The course offers Design Theory and Methodology as a framework that integrates theoretical concepts from different fields, which all contribute to the process and thus to the product. Lectures, discussions and assignments help the students to develop the ability to think critically about the design process and thereby enable them to improve their own design processes.

During this course we explore the theoretical and methodological foundation of designing in depth, as well as look at current debates and best practices. The course attempts to stimulate students into actively engaging with the subject through a number of assignments. Students are taken through design fundamentals which consist of four subareas: design history, hand-drawing, graphic design and form studies. Integration of those subareas aims at the acquisition of design knowledge and skills from several perspectives and development of creative abilities. An industrial designer is expected to master knowledge and understanding of design aspects in a historical context.

The module on Drawing is based upon a general knowledge of visual perception. It is not only essential in obtaining a sense of spatial relationships and ‘shape-awareness’, but also helps develop imaginative visual thinking. Professional designers use specific drawing skills in the design-process as a means of communication, not only to themselves, but also to colleagues and clients. Drawing is learnable like reading and writing; a special talent is not a condition, but a substantial amount of practice is necessary.

At the end of the program, a student would have acquired the following capabilities:

  • Would be capable of developing innovative products and product-service combinations to satisfy the needs of the consumer, based on finding a balance between the interests of the designer, the user, industry and society with due regard to international ethical issues.
  • Would have a thorough knowledge and understanding of, and be proficient in, the execution of the total product design process with an emphasis on conceptualization and would be able to perform and manage this process independently or as a member or the leader of a team, often in an international setting.
  • Would have a thorough knowledge of the human, aesthetic, technical and environmental issues involved and be acquainted with organizational and economic aspects of products.
  • Would be capable of an analytical approach to work based on broad and deep scientific knowledge.
  • Would be able to synthesize knowledge and solve problems creatively when dealing with complex issues.
  • Would have the qualities needed in occupations that require sound judgment, personal responsibility and initiative in complex and unpredictable professional environments.
  • Would be able to assume leading roles, including management, in companies and research organizations, and to contribute to innovation.
  • Would be able to work in an international environment by virtue of social and cultural sensitivity and language and communication proficiency, some of which will have been acquired in teamwork.
  • Would be aware of any ethical, social, environmental, aesthetic and economic implications of his or her work and will act accordingly.
