Master Product Design

As a decisive turning point in a career or as a follow-up to a Bachelor in Industrial Design, this Master programme is for students wishing to focus on two fundamental aspects of a designer’s practice, personal research as well as the professional handling of commissions for clients, companies or producers.

Besides the steadily ongoing refinement of design research abilities and practical design skills the students are confronted with the multifaceted realities of the design business. From production processes and concepts of efficiency through to the value of design, this Master programme offers the tools to become a successful professional. Supervised by renowned practitioners and theoreticians, the programme revolves around three basic pillars: a personal project developed by the student throughout the curriculum, assignments in cooperation with international companies leading to various productions, exhibitions and publications in the international press and the drawing up of a Master’s thesis. Students benefit from ECAL’s exceptional resources in terms of both infrastructure and the school’s unique network in the art and design fields.

Upon completion of this programme and with the help of additional training in fields such as photography, students build up a portfolio to the highest professional standards. ECAL graduates are much sought after by international agencies, design studios and companies or run their own business.

The first year students of the Master Product Design faced the stakes of the job of designer, from idea to manufacture and sale. The products created, everyday objects made in Switzerland with the help of local craftsmen, are the happy result.
