Training goals 

The studies leading to a degree in Industrial Design Engineering offer students an interdisciplinary training in both socio-cultural and technological subjects. These engineers work on designing, developing, producing and marketing industrial products.

The contents of the subjects are organised in four broad areas of study:

  • Visualisation, representation and communication systems.
  • Materials and their transformation, and technology and its applications.
  • Basic subjects ranging from applied physics and mathematics to the history of culture and design.
  • Projects involving the development of products of varying degrees of complexity.

In the final year of the degree course students can choose from several specialist pathways: the habitat, leisure, textile and equipment sectors.
