Présentation
Objectives

This Master’s aims to train designers-researchers interested in questioning the structure of contemporary life through design projects and research. The aim of the first year of the Master’s in Design is to educate students ‘by and through research’, through learning by doing and by teaching them about the fundamental tools and concepts used in the subject area. The first year of the Master's programme provides various situations which are designed for practical experience - in workshops, studios, work placements, etc. - and around the essential skills of a future designer-researcher: documenting, modelling, experimenting, coding, representing and publishing. The aim of the second year of the Master’s in Research in Design is to continue the training of the designer-researcher, giving priority to learning how to use the tools of research and to research through practice and the development of a single issue.
