About this course

The BFA in Product Design offers a curriculum in design methodologies and an environment conducive to innovative thinking. Beyond problem-solving skills and in-depth analysis of users, markets and cultural values, students also learn to redefine problems and question traditional methods while developing new means of seeing and thinking. Through close interaction with faculty, in small studios and classes, and with a dynamic laboratory and workshop for producing new forms, students gain the experience, knowledge and vision to create innovative work of strong conceptual value.

To enable students to gain first-hand industry experience, ADM encourages all students to undertake internship. Internships last ten weeks and students will be supervised by the professors and relevant industry practitioners.
