    Product Design Semester Course

    The intensive Product Design Course (6 months) prepares students to take their first steps in product design in an introduction to the techniques, processes and methodologies of this discipline. This course provides access to IED Madrid’s master’s degree programmes and to the job market for those who are starting their professional career. This course concentrates several years of study into one, offering a unique benefit to students.


    • Fundamentals of the creative process: block that introduces students to the creative process in a cross-cutting manner by presenting the conceptual fundamentals of design and project methodology. Various types of research are used to acquire a strategic vision, students are introduced to sustainable and systemic thinking, and culture, sociology and art are discussed.
    • Labs: block introducing students to the specific concepts of the speciality, such as ergonomics, materials, production systems etc. through practical workshops.
    • Tools - Manual: block for learning about the manual resources of a designer: techniques for expression and communication, such as drawing, colour and modelling (FabLab).
    • Tools - Digital: block for learning about digital tools for communication, representation and 3D modelling.

    Why study at IED Madrid?

    Society is at a time at which many products fulfil their functionality and satisfy our day-to-day physical needs, but it is time to ask ourselves whether they also improve our lives on other levels. A product designer challenges this question and conventional thinking and designs products, services and user experiences that surprise and that improve people’s lives.

    The one-year Product Design Course is designed to provide students with basic training as product designers. This is achieved through an educational programme that combines the tools needed to undertake a project. 

    Students will come into contact with technical and technological tools that will help them to understand the operational processes and vocabulary of product design. They will gain the necessary knowledge to be able to continue with their training in a master’s degree or other design studies. This intensive course offers students the opportunity to develop their own ideas and innovative concepts through the subjects studied during the course.
