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. Students will be equipped with illustration skills as they have to be able to develop original ideas and concepts, as well as technical capabilities. They will also develop research and planning skills – in order to set a strategy for approaching each project, creativity and attention to detail.

Although most graduates of design work in media, advertising or software technology, other popular career options include: exhibition designer, interior designer, landscape architect, multimedia specialist, fashion designer and more.
