Master in Product Design

Product Design Course

Program Head – Strate, France: Olivier BEUNE, Designer

Product Design Course: Useful, Beautiful, Responsible

The “Product Design” course at Strate, Bengaluru aims at training designers who are able to implement systemic thinking and design services and products satisfying those usages and issues.

It is no longer possible today to design objects that are disconnected from usages and societal issues. Between the realities of industrial production and the ambition to create meaning for his contemporaries, today’s product designer navigates through objects’ materiality and services’ immateriality. Thus, we need to prepare our students to consider all the human issues from a new perspective, generously and accurately, to design and offer fair and beautiful experiences.

What will you learn?

You will learn to design objects and their usages with a sustainable approach. You will apply your knowledge to put beauty in the service of everyday utilities. The Product Design course, or more commonly called an Industrial Design course, from Strate aims to make you a designer capable of thinking and designing services and satisfying product uses as the challenges of the 21st century.
