An introduction to the possible future scenarios of strategic design, the concept of sustainability and the multiple methodologies of design has been the starting point for the Masters of Design and Innovation 2018: Communication Design Labs, Product Design Labs and Strategic Design Labs.
Students from multiple origins, not only geographic and cultural, but also professional, have worked in various workshops together with leading professionals of international renown, such as Vernon Collis and Clive Van Heerden.
A start marked by the learning by doing methodology, a characteristic of the programme, where teamwork, multidisciplinarity and co-creation have been the starting point for a year of training around design and innovation in order to create a new generation of professionals capable of revolutionising the world..
