Bachelor of Arts in Product Design

The Bachelor of Arts in Product Design that you are going to study in ESNE will teach you to develop and produce prototypes as well as to use cutting-edge technologies such as 3D printing to manufacture products.

Product design is a discipline that brings together art, science and technology. A product designer faces the need of constantly redefining the objects which surround human beings in the 21st century.

With a Degree in Product Design, students will develop complex spacial thinking to detect problems at production stages, contribute solutions and anticipate results.

During their training, students will acquire key skills such as geometric control, knowledge of behaviour of materials and construction techniques. They will learn how technologies are integrated into these skills and how the market requires interactivity, which leads to a constant demand.
