Objectives

The objective of the course  is the teaching of fundamentals of creation, both at theoretical and practical levels, to obtain a wide education that enables students’ incorporation to different disciplines. The course trains students to become able to create a concept and express an idea through several disciplines.

The course will be developed in three modules:

- A theoretical module to acquire academic knowledge.

- A practical module to acquire techniques.

- A module for multidisciplinary projects.

The course is addressed to all those interested in getting into the disciplines of product design, interior design, fashion design, graphic design, advertising and marketing, helping them to choose the path they want to become their career. During this year, students will acquire the essentials of creation and design.

Also, at the end of the course students can create their own work portfolio, an essential tool in the world of design to break into the professional life with more guarantees. The said portfolio captures the practical abilities of a designer, who can show it to future clients or other design schools or institutions.
