How should the new products we will need be? In the Master in Product Design you will learn the tools and you will acquire the abilities that must be available to model, represent and simulate the behavior of an innovative product, selecting the material and the most appropriate manufacturing process.

Study Product Design

The training offering of this Master ranges from the representation of the initial concepts to the technical development of the final product, going through the different phases of the design and engineering processes.

The Master in Product Design is aimed at specializing and updating professionals and postgraduates from different sectors, especially professionals in the field of design and product engineering. All the teachers who collaborate in the Master are professionals who are active experts in industrial design studios or companies.

One of the key points of the success of the Master is the relationship with the companies that collaborate with the course, since they carry out continuous monitoring and assessment of the group of students. This close tutoring by experts enables students to design and develop an innovative project that provides an optimal solution to the briefing initially proposed by the company. In this way, the student acquires the professional skills that will qualify him/her for his/her working environment.

Visits to technology centres and benchmark companies allow for very direct contact with the professional reality of the moment. This proximity to professionals and collaborating companies generates the opportunity for internship agreements that are compatible with the studies.

Some of the companies we have collaborate are: Play, Hewlett Packard, Cosmic, Roca Sanitario, Santa&Cole, Simon, Figueras, Valira, Lamp Lighting, Educa Borras, Laken, El Naturalista, Teck-Rock, Zobele Group, Esportiva Aksa, Pando, IMC Toys, Taurus, Solac, Crevin, Signes, FujiFilm, Cata, Madel, Signes, Pujadas, Total Care, Cestisa, BioSystemes and Vibia.

  • Enhance the initial phase of the design process with creative techniques, user-centered design resources, and experimental design applications.
  • Learn about the current situation of product design, through the designers participating in the course from the most relevant national agencies and studios in the sector.
  • Experience the knowledge acquired through the realization of real projects with companies. These companies are producers and have their headquarters in Spain. We collaborate with representative firms of various sectors of the industrial product.
  • Provide solid knowledge about the latest technologies in the industry and the different materials that the market offers, in order to develop the product in the most simple, effective and economical way.
  • Learn about the technological viability and the production costs of a project to take the best decisions in the course of its development.
  • Study and assess the specific decisions made in a product development project by exposing the different options that arise in the industrialization of company projects.
  • Learn to use different CAD (Computer Aided Design) / CAE (Computer Aided Engineering) tools that allow to represent, visualize and simulate the behavior of a product to guarantee the viability and the correct operation of the final project.

Transversal competences:

  • Ability to identify opportunities and define design concepts.
  • Ability to argue and represent concepts and to express and defend the design proposals and the technical decisions made.
  • Ability to work with multidisciplinary teams for the management of new products.

Specific competences:

  • Ability to carry out new product projects, from the conceptual phase to the technical development.
  • Ability to assess the functional, aesthetic, cultural, technological, economic and communication implications of the new product to be developed.
  • Ability to apply the creative techniques of reference, as well as the most effective management and expression resources.
  • Ability to apply the knowledge acquired from the selection of materials, transformation processes and structural and kinematic simulation, to the project of redesign or optimization of a product.
  • Ability to use the prototypes as a validation tool for the company projects carried out.
  • Ability to apply CAD / CAM / CAE tools, to generate any 3D geometry, quality rendered images and videos of assembly and operation of the product.
