How can we use advanced materials and emerging technologies to achieve sustainable results with a future projection? In the Master in Industrial Design Engineering you will discover the tools every engineer must investigate and you will learn to transform the current industry.

The Master in Industrial Design Engineering complements the professional and academic knowledge previously acquired in any of the areas of engineering, with the intention of training a creative professional with a clear advanced understanding of the function and potential of emerging technologies. It is also aimed at people who want to work in technology transfer or centers of innovation, scientific or applied research.

Industrial Design Engineering: A bet for the future

The projects of the Master propose solutions that arise from the systemic relationship between design, communication, scientific research, engineering and computer science, focusing on innovation-oriented topics or common conceptual frameworks for research in a number of areas.

It combines user interaction with avant-garde technology and creative design that allows to foresee new future scenarios with the assurance that they can be implemented in the current context. Therefore, studying this master in engineering is a clear commitment to the future.

The Master in Industrial Design Engineering, led by Elisava and with the collaboration of research centers such as Eurecat, provides a professional vision of an integrating engineer with the ability to research from the technology in laboratories, to create through scientific knowledge, increasing its capacity for innovation in the industry. This structure allows linking an interconnected network of companies, professionals and technology centers, which give shape to concepts such as Embedded Technology, Smart Objects, Wearable Computing y Reactive Materials.


Study industrial engineering in Barcelona

Our Master in Industrial Engineering provides the necessary tools to train professionals specialized in industrial engineering and design capable of transforming today's industry. 

Elisava offers an unrivalled framework in which students are trained taking into account present and future needs. Our teaching system aims to bring the new realities emerging from the sector closer. The direct and constant contact with companies, professionals and technological centres trains the student and offers them a real and founded vision of the new needs in design and industrial engineering. 

The Master in Industrial Design Engineering has the collaboration of different agents, both national and international, pioneers in the field of industrial design. In this sense, it is important to highlight that Barcelona is a pioneering city in the field of engineering and design. There is no better setting than our city for the student of these disciplines. 

The Master in Industrial Design Engineering has clear objectives:

  • Train professionals with strategic vision to define a value proposition based on advanced technology. Understand the positioning of a product in the market and the development of its business model.
  • Acquire the skills to link creativity and technology. Explore new ways of creation through scientific and technical knowledge for innovation in the industry.
  • Learn to use the methodologies to find the valueinsights in order to conceptualize an innovative product.
  • Understand the composition of reactive materials,smart textiles, printed electronics, as an opportunity for the trend in integrated products.
  • Train professionals who are up to date on the conceptsof Internet of Things (IoT), Internet of People (IoP) and Smart Objects.
  • Provide solid knowledge about digital manufacturing linked to the Internet of Things (IoT), as one of the new production models. Thus, students can understand a contextual industry with greater adaptability to the needs and production processes, which has been called Industry 4.0.

The Master in Industrial Design Engineering is designed for students to acquire, develop and exercise specific skills and competencies, which summarize the necessary skills to design and develop an Industrial Design Engineering project. The student will gain the specific theoretical and practical knowledge of each phase, as well as a cross-cutting vision and experience of the global process.

  • Experiment with systems, technologies, processes, materials and tools to validate the product design and development process.
  • Select and use dynamic materials, advanced technologies and digital manufacturing processes in the product design and development process.
  • Analysis and synthesis ability
  • Ability to apply knowledge in the analysis of data and situations to solve problems.
  • Ability to develop creativity and motivation for the innovation process.
  • Develop own methodology and procedures in innovative design project.
  • Design and implement formal, communicative and technological solutions to solve design and product development situations.
  • Teamwork skills.
