The School of Industrial Design offers the Master of Design program (MDes) which focuses on a strong commitment to design research, interdisciplinary design practices and advanced development in the field of industrial design. In order to complete the MDes program, you will need to complete coursework and to write a thesis in a field which deeply interests you.  This is done by consulting with your thesis supervisor.

We look for candidates with prior design training or professional experience, who want to probe more deeply into the theoretical and practical design issues related to design research, strategic design planning, and advanced knowledge in design and interdisciplinary design development that could significantly contribute to the design field.
