Design helps identify and understand the needs of users and market demand, providing new solutions in terms of usability, functionality and esthetics. The program fosters the ability to think globally in order to detect market needs, learn about trends and bring innovative products to reality.
With this Master's degree in Industrial Design from Nebrija University, the student obtains the necessary skills and knowledge to develop his/her professional career in furniture and habitat product design, trend studies, design consulting firms, and product design and development.
Design is a much more important activity than most people believe, because it is about making life more comfortable, easy and simple for users, providing new solutions to society's needs, through the design of products that are innovative and accessible to all.
With this official Master's Degree in Industrial Design from Nebrija University, the student acquires the necessary skills and abilities to find innovative solutions to the market's needs, selecting the most appropriate material and manufacturing process, addressing issues such as sustainability and environmental impact of production.
The implementation of Postgraduate Programs in the "Bologna Process" provides students with all quality guarantees regarding content, faculty and facilities, through the supervision and approval by the University Authorities of these programs.
This Postgraduate Program has a strongly innovative character, with truly avant-garde subjects that address aspects and emerging areas of maximum interest, promoting institutional relationships that provide students with the best and most advanced opportunities for professional development in the design environment. This program is the only master's degree in Industrial Design that includes a specialization in Habitat.
The teaching methodology is oriented towards projects, with an intense participation and research work by the students, guaranteeing their maximum involvement and motivation in the proposed design problems. The development of technical, creative and communication skills is the final objective of this master's degree, until the integral product manager is shaped.
The Master's degree consists of two teaching modalities, "Habitat" and "Product Management". In the “Habitat” modality, the subjects are taken face-to-face, while in the “Product Management” modality, there are three established criteria: Face-to-face (100% classroom attendance), Blended (50% classroom attendance and 50% remote attendance) and Online (100% remote attendance).
The methodology implemented in the master's degree, both in the face-to-face modality "Habitat" and in the blended modality "Product management", is supported by Nebrija University's technological infrastructures, which allow the development of educational activities and acquisition of the degree's competences.
The Nebrija University Virtual Campus is supported by the Blackboard Learn teaching and learning computer platform. This virtual environment is constantly updated by the professors, and allows students to access the contents of their subjects and activities at any time, as well as having communication tools that facilitate student-professor interaction.
The campus is the main professor-student communication channel and, in addition to a tutoring medium, it serves as a document repository, as a support for interactive learning activities and delivery mailbox for learning and assessment activities. In the virtual campus, videoconferences are also held, important notices related to the coordination and development of the program are published, as well as information of interest to students.”
Industrial Design and Product Development Engineer, 2020
Master's Degree in Industrial Design, 2021 "Nebrija University's Master's degree in Product Design has helped me a lot to improve as a professional. They have taught me all kinds of competences necessary to be a successful designer. The subjects taught had everything I imagined, they were a pleasant and enriching experience. The professors have been of great help throughout the arduous journey that is a master's degree and they were there for everything we needed."
Nebrija University and Yamaha MS Racing have signed a collaboration agreement whereby the University becomes one of the team's sponsors during the next season of the World Superbike Championship - WorldSBK, in which students from the Higher Polytechnic School will be able to carry out their professional internships.
You can choose between two specialties, a class attendance one (Habitat), new in Spain, and another in the blended modality (Product Management), compatible with one's personal and professional life.
Know the current situation of product design, through the designers participating in the course from the most relevant agencies and studios in the sector.
The subjects are set out as real departments of a design and development company; this will make the student have a more realistic view of the market and greater employability opportunities.
100% practical program with the best and most complete facilities.
It is a unique program due to its conception and for its contents, specialization alternatives and institutional relations that provide the participants with the best and most advanced professional development opportunities in the design field.
The student must take 60 credits
In the "Habitat" specialty, the subjects are taken in the face-to-face modality.
In the "Product Management" specialty, three criteria are established for its teaching: Face-to-face (100% attendance in classroom), Blended (50% attendance in classroom and 50% remote attendance) and Online (100% remote attendance)
The "Product Management" specialty is taught in a blended format, responding to the demand from students for a learning system compatible with their professional activity. It is aimed at those who seek to orient their technical training towards the field of design, or those who want to go deeper into this training, but find it difficult because they are already integrated into the labor market.
This format allows learning with a more theoretical perspective and with less practical load, allowing for some subjects to be taught in a blended mode and that those with a strong practical or experimental component be taught in person, ensuring at all times the acquisition of the competences related to this practical nature.
Thus, three criteria are established for the teaching of the subjects: Face-to-face (100% attendance in the classroom), Blended (50% attendance in the classroom and 50% remote attendance) and Online (100% remote attendance). The face-to-face modality corresponds to four subjects in each semester, as well as the curricular practices, which begin in the second semester. The details of the modality can be consulted in the link "Curriculum".
