Design degrees focus on fundamental aspects of design activity, from comprehension and methodology to values and philosophy. Design is often the first step before executing a certain product that has to follow certain aesthetic features and also respond to certain customers’ needs. Students enrolled in a Bachelor or Master in Design will learn to define the particularities of a certain object or concept, shape, size, colour, environment, costs, functionalities, utility, constraints, etc.

The use and attributes of design are becoming more and more diversified and are nowadays present in many different business sectors, from architecture and civil engineering, to organizational and human behaviour. A designer may work in different fields of activity such as: fashion design, interior design, graphic design, industrial design, web design and more.
