The degree course in Design is based on a study plan centered on the project and comprising an integrated set of curricular units, coordinated by the groups of disciplinary areas existing at FAUL, and aims to train professionals able to participate in solving the multiplicity of problems in societies that depend on a comprehensive and informed vision, and on a capacity for particular, prospective synthesis, which must be the skill of designers.
The training offered in this course — organized around three-dimensional Design UCs (product, equipment, environments) and two-dimensional Design UCs (graphic, digital) — being simultaneously comprehensive and specialized, aims to train designers more capable of dealing with the complex problems of a rapidly changing world or to prepare them to pursue studies in specialization courses, both Master courses offered internally and others.
