At Elisava we believe that you are who must decide your own path. Together we will rethink the limits of design and engineering, and all its disciplines so that you have all the necessary tools, knowledge and resources to get the most out of your time at the School. We want you to maximise your abilities and build step by step the profile of engineer that you want to be.

We believe in "doing" as an engine for change and innovation. Therefore, our educational model is based on project work, where all disciplines coexist and combine to obtain the most original and disruptive results possible. You will learn to generate ideas and overcome challenges that shape new paradigms and realities.

We think of the School as a HUB of connections and, therefore, we encourage and strengthen relationships with the business and institutional fabric, the design and engineering professionals and our alumni. Thus, you will have at your disposal a network of national and international contacts of first line, whether you are taking an internship, participating in projects or doing an Erasmus programme.

Do you like maths, but you spend most of your day drawing? Do you love to think about products, spaces and their aesthetics, but do you find it intriguing and exciting to know its structural strength?

Elisava offers you the possibility of combining the studies of the Degree in Design and Innovation and the Degree in in Engineering in Industrial Design through a dual degree programme of simultaneous studies that allows you to obtain both degrees after 12 semesters (6 years).

The Simultaneous Studies Programme offers you the possibility of training to complement the acquired creative skills of the Degree in Design and Innovation with the technical preparation promoted by the Degree in Industrial Design Engineering. It is a unique, necessary and avant-garde proposal, especially valuable in a world in which it is increasingly important to have a holistic profile that tackles design and product development projects in a global manner.

Therefore, being part of this programme gives you the opportunity to develop this more complete profile. A profile resulting from the value generated by the coexistence of design and engineering in the same space. Because, for us, the union of the design process with creativity and engineering is the key to the world of design to dialogue in a multidisciplinary and transversal way, not only with industry but also with institutions and entities.

Check the career opportunities of both Degrees:

The collaboration with the business and institutional sector is part of the everyday life of the School. That is why, during the four years of the Degree, you will have the opportunity to participate in academic projects, workshops and other activities carried out in collaboration with companies and institutions such as Hard Rock Café, Sony, Swarovski, HP, Desigual, Danone, SEAT, Santa & Cole , Sónar, Mira, MACBA, Fundació Arrels, Desis Network, Victoria & Albert Museum ...

In addition, from the 3rd course (or when you have 120 ECTS credits exceeded), you will be able to take curricular and/or extracurricular internship programmes in front-line companies so that you can enter the working world with all the necessary knowledge and resources.

At Elisava we believe that exchange and mobility of students and professors enrich university education and, therefore, we promote the international relations of the School with other educational centres, universities and research centres around the world.

Currently, we have agreements with more than 70 of the most recognised and influential universities in the world of design and engineering worldwide.
