Where Passion Becomes a Profession
OVERVIEW OF THE COURSE
Our Bachelor in Design has been conceived for those who wish to acquire new skills, knowledge and find new solutions when developing new propositions for global issues in Design. Our course plan has been outlined based on a strategic decision through a multidisciplinary attitude in global markets.
Our Bachelor in Design prepares professionals for several Design areas, offering an advanced and comprehensive higher education, coordinated and supported by the latest developments in the scientific and technological fields. The course plan for LSDM's Bachelor's degree in Design has been developed and divided into three separate stages:
The first stage, which corresponds to the first year of our course, aims to prepare LSDM's students for several Design areas through the contemporary and extensive comprehension of concepts, tools, history and design methods in general. It also aims to comprehend the links between the key areas of activity (such as communication, interaction, and product design) through the development of a comprehensive overview of the topics associated with the design's mission, its interaction with the markets and its role in society.
The second stage, which corresponds to the second year of our course, aims to instill solid skills for the development and implementation of projects. These skills are structured around the main areas of communication concept, interactive design, and product design. The students will be able to:
- Identify and analyse: analyse the environment in which problem-solving takes place, think creatively, identify the conditions and goals associated with problem-solving and identify the necessary resources and skills;
- Make choices: make decisions, understand the associated uncertainties and risks, foresee future implications of the decisions and develop argumentative capacity;
- Integrate: processes and the diversity of interests simultaneously with the increase of flexibility and innovation;
- Implement: planning and organisation, a creation of suitable environments, implementation, and control, development of creative skills in the project design and execution stages.
The third stage, which corresponds to the third year of our course, aims to establish the knowledge acquired in previous course units and progress with self-confidence, realism, and entrepreneurship. In this stage, LSDM's students will develop their final course project through the following skills:
- Flexibility: being able to deal with a variety of design projects and adjust to changing circumstances as a multi-skilled professional and willing to work in a multidisciplinary team;
- Empathy: being able to understand and argue different points of view;
- Realism: making a quick assessment of their own skills and performance skills at any moment, relying on their own expertise and performance;
- Entrepreneurship: ability to create, develop and sell an idea, visual work, product or service.
