The Design program at Concordia University Montréal offers a stimulating and creative environment in which students are encouraged to explore conceptual and theoretical issues through a project-based or academic research.
In contrast to traditional design education in which disciplines such as graphic or industrial design are segmented and separated, the program identifies and synthesizes connections between the visual, the built, and the interactive so that integrated, experimental and collaborative aspects of design practice emerge. Most importantly, the program distinguishes itself by putting the emphasis on issues that deal with sustainability (ecological, social, and economic) as a strategy and a philosophy fundamental for the future of design theory and practice. The program also recognizes the importance of approaching design through sensorial as well as cognitive investigation.
