Bachelor in Product Design

Willem de Kooning Academy
Campus Full time September 2017 Netherlands Rotterdam

Product Design is about constantly examining the relationship between products and their users. There are all sorts of products and they are everywhere, from the purely functional to those that make a statement. [+]

Bachelors in Product Design in Europe 2017. Product Design is about constantly examining the relationship between products and their users. There are all sorts of products and they are everywhere, from the purely functional to those that make a statement. Emerging new technologies are triggering debate about the foundations of existing ideas about product design, use and the product economy. The free use of new distribution and production opportunities are creating major opportunities for product designers now. At its core, product design is about questioning and redefining what already exists. This is why, as a product designer, you develop meaning and think about appearance. An important part of your course is discovering and developing materials, often new ones, and production processes by literally ‘getting your hands dirty’. You could even go one step further: to not be afraid to dismantle the existing, both in a physical and a conceptual sense as well as in terms of production and distribution. In doing so, you develop new ideas and ways of use; you dive deeply into the consequences of designing in practice. Examples are aspects such as environmental and social sustainability. As a product designer, you are thus not limited to existing instruments, but you either adapt these instruments or you design your own instruments. This goes beyond the product itself: product design is not limited to tangible things, but it can also result into a process or a service. In short, product designers are people who see themselves as experimental, research-driven, collaborative and entrepreneurial in imagining how products can change our future. Creating Pioneers Our successful Lifestyle alumni include: Suzanne van Beest (nominated for the Electrolux Design Lab Competition and listed in HOT100) and Isaac Monté (winner of the Drempel Award 2013 and the Henri Winkelman Award 2013; currently he is Head of the Department of Product Design at The Academy of Design in Colombo/Sri Lanka). PORTFOLIO CHECKLIST Are you … talented in visual arts? independent and responsible? dedicated and motivated? entrepreneurial? Then visit one of our Open Days or Open Evenings – and bring your portfolio! – and apply for admission. WHAT A selection of 10-15 works which were preceded by a creative process For example: designs, objects, photos, films, games, animations, fashion (accessories), furniture, models, drawings, posters, campaigns, paintings, usable artifacts and sculptures. You can publish and present all of this in a neat traditional portfolio folder, but you can also use different methods: 3D work can be brought in a (cardboard) box, digital work can be presented on a laptop or tablet. Please note: apart from these works, please show us some other things you created. Make a careful selection between the two. That way, we can assess to what extent you have an insight in your own qualities and your own work. [-]

Course Content The focus of the degree is not only to develop you as a student and critical thinker, but to inspire your growth into a multi skilled and intellectual designer. These attributes, which are dependent on one another, combined with practical experience and an understanding of the product design industry, will form the beginning of your career, and stand you in the strongest possible position to carry yourself forward. The Product Design programme is taught by a dedicated team of academics and practicing designers; staff interests and research areas range from prototyping, user-centered design, critical design, and brand form development, to lighting, joinery and contemporary furniture. The BA and BSc product design courses are structured to be delivered over 3 years with 3 modules per year entitled 'Subject', 'Field' and 'Constellation.' Employability and Careers Whilst your learning is designed to develop you into a rounded and capable artist/designer and intellectual, your curriculum is similarly structured with your potential in mind. As such, the emphasis that will have been placed upon your work ethic, both creatively and academically, is matched with significant focus on real world experience; from building contacts and undertaking placements to live briefs and, should you choose so, support in forming your own business. You can elect to take a route through your second and final years of studies where you can engage with businesses or launch your own for the moment you graduate. In your final year, rather than submit a dissertation, you have the option of devising a detailed business plan. Throughout your time at CSAD, you will be meeting and hearing from professionals within your industry, honing your skills and ideas for commercial and professional advantage. Cross-disciplinary projects will prepare you for teamwork later on, whilst live briefs will prepare you for deadlines and the demands of tight specifications. [-]

Bachelors in Product Design in Europe 2017. Habitat Design The three-year post-diploma course in Habitat Design form designers in the following areas: interior architecture product design, green architecture and open spaces, exhibition stands and exhibitions. The course is active since 1987 and updated with each new edition. The course is recognized by MIUR as an Academic Diploma Level I. Who it is aimed at This university-level course is aimed at school leavers, from all types of secondary schools, who intend to dedicate themselves – to paraphrase Munari – to Art as a trade, in other words to a distinctly expressive-artistic technical activity, suitable for aesthetically and functionally improving the complex of elements that characterise the living environment, but without any town-planning implications and less involvement in bureaucratic-administrative procedures. It is an educational course that aims to emphasise the unitary character of the human environment and therefore of the instruments and skills required to ensure its care and increase its quality. Educational Objectives The objectives pursued in the Habitat Design course are: to guarantee to students the attainment of critical maturity, an understanding of the problems connected to transformational intervention on the living environment and methods for their most suitable solution; to provide students with technical knowledge and educational experiences in the fields of construction and production – artisan and industrial – for a speedy and satisfying start to their professional activities; to ensure graduates possess a secure planning method that encompasses creativity and rigour, both supported by an adequate grasp of the techniques of representation, both manual and computer-assisted, through the most advanced software available in 2 and 3D design and virtual modelling; to form characters who are expert in multiple and complementary techniques, all unified by method, guaranteeing, at the same time, a flexible planning attitude that allows the young professional to deal with the challenges arising from rapid social mutations and not just existing ones. Awarded qualification Academic Diploma Level I recognized by MIUR. Creative jobs The graduates in Habitat Design can operate in many fields: all those situations when the intervention is required of a specialist capable of guaranteeing aesthetic quality united with technical and functional performance, respecting the available budget and with a particular attention to detail. More precisely: fitting out public or private spaces, whether residential or for work; commercial locations and places that are open to the public; renovation, reconversion and rehabilitation of spaces, including for changes of use. The graduate in Habitat Design can draft plans and manage works for projects that do not require authorisation, that is, other than the abovementioned fittings of very sort: sets, exhibitions, temporary structures, gardens and open spaces, as well as designing objects of all kinds, including those that will be mass produced, by artisan or industrial structures. This is an extremely vast and varied operative field, that can allow unsuspected talents to emerge and also create professional opportunities in promising but largely unexplored sectors. As a professional, graduates can join one of the professional associations in Italy or abroad.

Subjects The course deals with, studies and thoroughly analyses all those disciplines that support the project, providing it, on the one hand, with the necessary pragmatic dimension, and, on the other, with that solid theoretical-critical structure and cultural depth that are indispensable for cultured and aware designer. With this aim, the course teaches, other than the disciplines inherent in design, all those relative to construction materials and working techniques; the history and criticism of architecture, design and the figurative arts; the principles at the base of the visual languages as instruments and codes of invention; modelling applied to design. With these pragmatic objectives that aim at the acquisition, in a set time, of a solid professionalism, this course takes the form of a valid alternative to more theoretical studies. After a first year aimed at establishing and consolidating the operative method and culture of creative design, over the next two years students increasingly deal with all the technical aspects and experiences that will be useful in their profession. The three-year Habitat Design course aims directly at the result: the possession, on the part of the graduate, of professional skills and capabilities. Course location The course "Habitat Design" will be held in Rome at Quasar Design University. Via Crescenzio 17 A Roma(RM) - 00193 [-]
