About this program

Postgraduate in Product Concept

He works with two types of projects: one from the experimental aspect of design,and the other from the professional dimension of an external consultancy.At the same time, she participates inworkshopswith exclusive techniques and materials.

The Postgraduate in Product Concept is a professional course that offers two types of design projects for its students. At the same time, in the modules of Concept, Management and Representation, which are parallel to exclusive Workshops, the resources to face its realization are offered. The contents of these modules have a broad perspective and are also oriented towards other needs of the professional activity.

Some of these projects are research, are carried out individually and students agree to conceptualize from the field of Experimental Design, as an initiation to Design Research.Others of them, which also have an exploration and experimentation approach, are oriented to solve requirements that companies present to us.Until 2022 we have worked with close to thirty national and international firms that have entrusted us with prospecting issues within their respective fields.Elisava is one of the pioneering schools in the application of Experimental Design in academic projects1.Since the mid-eighties we have been working with this kind of projects to obtain advance information on the application of new technologies and materials.
