    Objectives

    This programme aims to train professionals in the world of Product Design who are able to understand and respond to the product and service needs of today’s world.

    Our professionals are designers with the skills for working at all stages of product development using the new technologies available in the market.

    Training within IED’s FabLab spaces enables students to work on both physical and on digital and technological self-production.

     

    Methodology

     

    IED Madrid has a proprietary and unique official programme in Product Design, which offers two paths of training specialisation: Industrial Design and Furniture and Decoration Design (Home Design) - and which brings together all the IED Group’s experience in design training. This is the letter of introduction of IED designers at international level.

    Our training is characterised by the use of a fundamentally practical methodology in which the projects come to fruition; they do not remain on paper. For this purpose, we have all the necessary resources for self-production, whether physical, digital or technological.

    Furthermore, the structure of the lines of learning allows the contents and strategic fields for the projects to be renewed and updated according to the current reality and market trends.

     

    Training Paths

    The training paths are specific routes for specialisation that meet the demands of the current job market. Each path includes specific contents that translate into projects, theoretical-practical subjects and experiences with professionals who are experts in each field. They make it possible to programme training that is adapted to the new design scenarios. They are defined with a strategic outlook that guarantees that our students are ready and trained for the new professional opportunities and scenarios.

    Industrial Design

    Core of the Undergraduate Degree in Product Design focused mainly on developing objects that may be manufactured industrially in large quantities. It also covers semi-industrial products or products made under the concept of self-production: digital or artisanal manufacturing. The most common products are: toys, urban and domestic furniture, containers and packaging, tools, appliances, jewellery, sports products and accessories, technological products and products in the field of mobility, transport and health.

    Furniture and Decoration Design (Home Design)

    This covers all aspects relating to the design of objects and their relationship with domestic spaces. Known internationally as Home Design, this path explores the history of furniture and decoration to experiment and propose new formats for objects and/or spaces. It allows product and interior designers to focus on designing chairs, tables, lamps, cutlery, textile design and other everyday products.
