The designer, by definition, is open-minded, curious, and empathetic.

As a designer, your vision, your approach, and your statements impact how products and services are going to be used to improve people’s lives. Strate is a unique design school in Bangalore that nurtures your talents as a designer.

The Master in Design program from Strate enables you to seek, innovate, design, and give shape to your ideas. It is typically an integrated M.Des. course, combining all facets of a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree.

The Master in Design program offers five unique specializations in Transportation, Product, Space, Identity, and Interaction. A distinctive aspect of the design course is each design specialization is accessible to you throughout the duration of the program. If you decide to change specializations, you are free to do so.

Objectives of the training

1. Place the human being at the centre

Learn to analyze the social and personal realities of our time (the notion of family, crowd management, human psychology, the evolution of man) to guide your creative process as closely to human needs as possible, in the improvement of the quality of life of people.

2. Master the tools and techniques of design

Translate your ideas into objects, services, or experiences by learning different methodologies of creation, expert drawing skills, 3D modelling, mock-ups, simulation, etc. The designer must know exactly how to structure his/her ideas. He/she must be able to describe them orally and in writing equally well.

3. A professional setting to foster employability

To promote your employability, there needs to be a constant association with professionals and businesses. The design curriculum at Strate includes up to 18 months of internships in 5 years, giving you adequate exposure to our professional partners.

4. Specialized yet open-ended training

To specialize and develop skills in different business areas, you will move towards Immersive Design training while preserving your expertise as a designer. A semester abroad is mandatory in the fourth year and can expose you to global design philosophies.
