Being an Industrial Designer is to develop a critical perspective regarding the world that surrounds us and that translates into an intervention capacity in order to find solutions in which the design can be a stimulus to improve our daily life.
We seek to develop this intervention capacity both in terms of the industrial product and in a broader scope within society in general.
At Cascais School of Arts & Design the technical and theoretical preparation we give our students, in addition to contributing to their intellectual development, also aims to contribute decisively to an effective capacity for dialogue and professional integration.
WHY CHOOSE US TO LEARN INDUSTRIAL DESIGN
At Cascais School of Arts & Design we want to differentiate ourselves by the place where we are, by the teaching-learning method very focused on the reality of professional practice, but above all, by the focus we make on personalization of teaching, both at the level of creativity and competence stimulus in our students, and in supporting the development of their individual projects.
In the Master in Industrial Design you will find a curricular plan centered in the design laboratories, where you will be able to fully develop your projects in the most important areas of Industrial Design. This practice will be supported by the perfect balance between other theoretical-practical modules and practical laboratories, where the approach to digital skills and technology play an important role.
