Without design, the world would be a much poorer, more tiring place. The discipline of design can be defined as ‘pervasive intelligence’ that invites us to find new meanings and new solutions, and that educates people to generate value and values for the world around them. Design has always been a powerful driver of social and aesthetic progress and of thinking.

· Who is it intended for?

The course is for applicants with a secondary school leaving diploma. Ideal students in this course aspire to transform their creative characteristics into the abilities to think, to conceive, to execute and to communicate projects, products and services. The course provides them with the research tools, methodologies and processes they will need to be able to govern the complexity of designing. As design is interdisciplinary by nature, the course will introduce students to the tools they need to interact with various experts in managing the process, from the product’s conception to its market commercialisation.
