Master's Programs in Industrial Design. Encompassing courses in design thinking and business management, the Master of Professional Studies in Design Management (M.P.S.) degree at the Shintaro Akatsu School of Design (SASD) prepares design managers to lead creative teams in a variety of design-based industries. The outstanding faculty – both resident and visiting – help develop disruptive thinking using design as the fulcrum for increasing customer delight. Design represents a valuable strategic asset – the tools and the processes to problem-solve and innovate. The management of that asset, the ability to understand, optimize, and steer that energy is becoming vital to an organization’s internal and external success. Category-leading companies like Apple, GE, Johnson & Johnson, Bose, and Schick know this to be a marketable truth. The MPS in Design Management program at SASD is a two-year intensive program for design professionals of all disciplines. Courses are specifically tailored to real-world issues facing designers and are taught by leading design management professionals. The team-based assignments focus on practical and actionable problem solving, preparing students to immediately use the information and skills they learn. Design Managers who graduate from SASD leave with the core skills and tools to apply design thinking to solve the most pressing business issues of our time: sustainability, social responsibility, and profitability. About the program Design Management uses right brain processes to solve left brain problems. This is a screen grab of the top results of an online search for “design management.” There are more report-like documents than pretty designs, suggesting the outcome of a Design Management project is a report rather than an object. Design Management incorporates design thinking, service design, and sustainability. It produces and manages information, services, and experiences. DM advocates and promotes design as a key differentiator and driver of organizational success. Rethink expertise. It’s very easy to think that you are the expert on your own product. But that’s a myth: the true experts are your customers. Jamie Wong (Vayable) Design Management incorporates design thinking, service design, and sustainability. It produces and manages information, services, and experiences. DM advocates and promotes design as a key differentiator and driver of organizational success. DM links design, innovation, technology, management, and customers to provide a competitive advantage across the “triple bottom line”: social/cultural, environmental, and economic. Who are design managers? Design managers lead design firms and design teams in creative industries. Design managers are brand managers, creative directors, design directors, heads of design, design strategists, design researchers, and managers and executives responsible for making decisions on how design is used throughout an organization. Design department managers, brand managers, creative directors, design directors, heads of design, design strategists, design researchers, and managers and executives responsible for making decisions on how design is used in an organization. The importance of accurately perceiving and assessing quality Design managers work with and lead others to develop superior business solutions. To be an effective leader, it is necessary to have two things: a refined and elevated sense of excellence, and a refined and elevated sense of mediocrity (average, unremarkable). The best way to learn relative quality is to compare your work to others’ in your immediate environment, that is, comparing it to your classmates’ work. Our students learn about assessment, responsibility, and comparative, relative quality. By these means, you will be most able to improve the quality of your own thinking. [-]

Master in Interior Design for Commercial Spaces

IED – Istituto Europeo di Design Barcelona
Campus Full time January 2017 Spain Barcelona

The Master in Interior Design for Commercial Spaces proposes to work from the basis of a theoretical and practical reflection on the design of the commercial space. [+]

Master's Programs in Industrial Design. THIS PROGRAM IS TAUGHT IN ENGLISH The Master in Interior Design for Commercial Spaces proposes to work from the basis of a theoretical and practical reflection on the design of the commercial space. The aim is to combine theoretical concepts and construction, quotation, and material interpretation, with the understanding that the design practice exists in relation to current society, to the present. Therefore, applying a historical perspective to design, analysing the current situation, and referring to the history of the place will, therefore be important issues to consider. The Master uses Barcelona as its working ground, and so deals with the commercial space associated with a territory where the street is the protagonist. Due to the geographical characteristics of our city, and good weather, much use is made of public spaces. Streets and squares are open spaces that oxygenate the urban fabric; and, within this area of high-density housing, they provide necessary ‘living rooms’ for citizens. Barcelona, unlike American cities, for example, is a “mixed-use” city, a sparsely zoned territory, where domestic life, work, and leisure co-exist. These two characteristics, the use of the public space and the “mixed-use”, makes the ground floor an important place of transition, and a threshold between public and private life. The boundary between the interior and the exterior is a blurred one, where the confines of the street do not end at the buildings, but rather extend into their interior, through its contact with the ground. Over the past few decades Barcelona has been reconstructing its own landscape, limited by the geographical elements that surround it (mountains, rivers, and the sea), carrying out different urban projects which arose from historical needs. In recent years, these transformations have been tied in with major events, and three projects, in particular have changed Barcelona’s urban structure: The Olympic Village developed for the Olympic Games in Barcelona in 1992. The extension of Avinguda Diagonal carried out in 2006 which involved the modification of the metropolitan area of Barcelona, extending Avinguda Diagonal as far as the sea. The creation of 22@ in the Poble Nou district, a new urban structure designed to transform the old area into a focus for new activity, where a balance is sought between its different potential uses. Making use of this richness, the course deals with the concept of the commercial space in relation to the “street”, taking into account the social and political situation to intervene in places that form part of the public debate. Objectives Confronted with the accelerating evolution of consumer markets, we are bombarded with image, identity, ambiance and life-style, which often have little to do with the everyday products they represent: the ‘consumer society’. Through work carried out during the Master, students will address the issue of commercial space not as an abstract construction, but as a commentary on reality. They will develop projects that are highly realistic and form part of the debate on the regeneration and design of the city. The projects will be supported data provided by the City Council’s Department of Architecture. The aim is for students to have closer contact with the professional world and to acquire the necessary tools to tackle the heterogeneity and diversity of programmes and places encompassed within the field of interior design. Following an integrated programme of practical and theoretical sessions, the participants will be assisted from the initial stages of strategy and conceptualization, through the design process to final presentation. Particular emphasis will be placed on the interdisciplinary aspects of the project, opening new ground to the designer, while reinforcing and amplifying previously acquired knowledge. The course is focused predominantly on research, learning a methodology, and project process. The end result is not an objective in itself, but a vehicle for providing the student with the knowledge and tools necessary to handle any type of multidisciplinary project in the future. Participants will have to develop the ability to plan and understand the stages of work process, by alternating both aspects. The course also draws on the students’ diverse backgrounds in order to further enhance the group’s knowledge. Methodology The Master offers an intensive program that provides methodological tools, steering away from the “inspired” search for an image related to an end result. The course will prepare the student in the field of abstraction, to design the space according to its emotional and visual aspects, and to pursue individual ways of thinking. The research avoids “decorated” or “fancy” spaces, in order to reinforce the knowledge of the nature and sensitivity of the place. This methodological and heterogeneous vision will increase the students’ professional skills, opening up their field of work in the design world. Work will be carried out on different scales, from the urban to the human, from overall context to detail, allowing for comprehensive control of the project. The teaching methodology proposes projects that define the place in four ways: 1_ The physical space in which they are carried out. 2_ The “present” in relation to its historical situation. 3_ The social reality and therefore issues that concern citizens. 4_ The matter as an interpretation oflife. Students Profile Students will be required to present a graphic portfolio demonstrating their ability to manipulate shapes, and their mastery of design theory. Moreover, two exercises are required to be sent: 1. The construction of a space through the cutting and folding (without separating pieces) of an A4 sheet of paper: just one photograph should be presented and an adjective that define the space. 2. Construction of a space of light through the strategic perforation of a foam board box 50x50x50cm: just one photograph should be presented and an adjective that define the space. (More detailed information will be provided during the application process). All students admitted must have a qualification in one of the following areas: ‐ Architecture ‐ Engineering ‐ Interior Design ‐ Product Design ‐ Graphic Design ‐ Visual Arts ‐ Landscaping ‐ Social Sciences During the project process, the Master promotes group work as a learning methodology: two or more students, with different experiences, who are able to manage the proposals will be better prepared for the reality of professional practice, and it also makes the course more realistic. For this reason, the Master course values the fact that students have different qualifications, as this enhances the interdisciplinary peculiarity of the projects. Professional Opportunities The Master students will have acquired sufficient knowledge for them to be able to integrate different disciplines from the design world into their projects: ‐ Architecture: the project method starts with a physical and historical analysis of the place. ‐ Interior design: understood as a continuation, an extension of the exterior space; avoiding “fancy solutions”, and seeking spaces with atmosphere and imbued with their own particular character. ‐ Product design: the ability to use detail or an object as a project matrix, whether for its modular, geometric or fractal capacity. Coordinators The coordinator of the Master supports the choice of the teaching team, all of them professionals with extensive experience, and associated with prestigious institutions and organisations in their fields of expertise. We have the participation of prominent international professors and speakers, who will explain to students the different approaches to designing contemporary interior spaces. Timetable: Monday to Friday from 6.30 p.m to 10.30 p.m. * The educational planning for all IED Master courses is aligned with the criteria established by the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). The IED Master program has adopted a credit structure that follows the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). The IED Master issues private degrees. [-]

In the courses included in the programme, students will work with innovation and design from different perspectives regarding technology, the social sciences, the humanities and the arts, which are brought together to promote opportunities for innovative processes. In the programme, the focus will be on innovation and design processes in interdisciplinary projects and in cooperation with private companies or the public sector. In the first year, students acquire more in-depth knowledge within the main field of study, innovation and design, by defining and identifying challenges. Students are expected to be able to position themselves in the subject area and master the processes and models applied in the main field of study, for example regarding the planning, management and realization of projects, including risk management, as well as techniques for innovation and design processes. In addition, students will learn to apply research methods, mostly qualitative ones, that are of relevance in the main field of study. Students are expected to be able to motivate and problematize the choice of theories and methods for the collection and analysis of data. In the second year, there will be an opportunity to pursue one’s studies abroad. Students wishing to do so – or wishing to study elsewhere in Sweden – will plan for this during the first year of the programme. Those who wish to continue studying at Mälardalen University will be offered elective courses corresponding to a total of 30 credits. These will make it possible for students to acquire, within their degree, a more pronounced knowledge profile within innovation and design. Finally, students are expected to carry out an independent degree project, which includes the critical and creative identification and formulation of research questions and the completion of qualified tasks with adequate methods and within given time frames. Choices within the program In the second year of the programme, students freely choose courses corresponding to 30 credits, either at Mälardalen University or at another university in Sweden or abroad. University degree The degree programme is so designed that the studies will lead towards fulfilment of the requirements for the following degree: Master of Science in Innovation and Design If the programme contains elective or optional components, or if a student chooses not to complete a certain course, the choices made can affect the possibility of fulfilling the degree requirements. For more information about degrees and degree requirements, consult the local degree regulations which are published (in Swedish only) on the university website. [-]

Master in Industrial DesignAs a result of the transition from an industrialised society to a knowledge and communication based society, Industrial Design is a discipline in rapid development.More products than ever before are being manufactured, but regrettably, levels of quality vary. As products become more intelligent and communicative, demands on them change. A product’s sense of value is now less that of the material and more of what it can do and what can be done with it.In the Industrial Design domain, students work with classic skills of sketching, marker drawing, 3D computer modelling and model making. However, students are also, to a greater extent, involved with concept development that, in more general terms, considers users in contexts of the future and the immaterial values that products bear with them. Hence, user-observation and interaction mapping have become core areas of the discipline.Industrial Design emphasises idea generation and visualisation as much as collaboration with industry and other professionals such as marketing experts, economists, engineers, sociologists and anthropologists.Industrial Design has an ongoing collaboration with a range of companies in both teaching and project development, amongst others Bang and Olufsen, Lego, Innovation Lab and Kildemoes....
