Industrial Design, as a discipline, seeks to integrate within the strategic, productive and commercial fields of the company all those attributes that the future user will value in products in an emotional, functional and sociocultural way.
The Industrial Design is, of the disciplines integrated in Product Development, the closest to the human being as user. Design has its historical origins in the need to adapt industrially manufactured products to the trends and human needs of emotion, notoriety and differentiation. Where there is no difference there is no valuation.
Why study the degree
One of the main distinctive features that characterize this training in the Campus of Ferrol is the strong interaction with the industrial and business environment that has already been achieved over the fourteen years of existence of the EUDI.
There are numerous Industrial Design and Product Development Projects, the Seminars, technical and strategic advice and many activities that are carried out continuously in the framework of numerous research and advisory agreements, framed in the teaching activity, and in which the Students actively.
This success is possible thanks to the extensive involvement of students, the institutional support of the University of Coruña and the dedication, capacity and special motivation of the teaching staff.
The level of training achieved by the graduates and the quality that the Projects directed in the EUDI are the optimum guarantee for the institutional, business and industrial agents of all sectors, with which it collaborates intensely.
What is learned
The Graduate or Graduate in Engineering in Industrial Design and Product Development can develop their profession in the industrial company, in the public administration and in the companies of engineering and consulting (services).
In any of them it is very probable that in his work he directs, participates or is related to projects of diverse nature. In fact, the "business-by-project" business models are becoming more frequent.
Hence, previous familiarization with the concepts, complexity, particularities, and methodologies of resolution, management and project management facilitate the student's incorporation into the professional world.

Based on the experience gained in the EUDI (University School of Industrial Design), after fourteen operating courses, it does not seem necessary to establish an ideal admission profile for admission of students beyond the currently established admission profiles by law .
The students who currently access this degree, from the different access routes of the Baccalaureate, given the interdisciplinary nature of the training, do not show specific training problems, beyond those usual in an Engineering degree. There is no reason why this situation could change.
