B.A. in Industrial Design
The B.A. in Industrial Design is aimed at individuals with a clear creative inclination. It is based on a methodology that ensures compliance with the requirements of this profession. The emphasis of this program lies on projects of creation and products within industrial, semi-industrial, traditional or alternative systems. It also seeks to promote initiatives by looking for productive and commercial alternatives which have not been considered in the current business planning processes.
Upon completion of the program the students will:
- respond creatively and innovatively to the needs of new products of companies, institutions and organizations;
- develop a critical view on matters of socio-cultural and environmental identity and impacts caused by the products designed.
- have a good command of the operational, functional, technical, constructive, communicative and aesthetic aspects of objects and products, in order to facilitate their acceptance, production and marketing;
- join companies or organizations, work independently as consultants or advisers or plan their own business based on a personal or collective identity.
The curriculum promotes the development of a critical and personal design style. Furthermore, it encourages teamwork and the comprehension of the technologies needed to implement product projects, systems or product lines.
Besides the required technical expertise, it increases the student’s expressiveness and projective sensitivity, maintaining an appropriate balance between practice and theory.
The curriculum is divided into three core areas: projective creation, instrumental, culture and enterprise.
