M.Sc. in Industrial Design

The Master of Science in Industrial Design trains students in research, production and development in industrial design, media design, engineering design and related professions, with an emphasis on their close interface with technology and science, as applied to design thinking, hybrid design, consumer product design, interface design (UI and UX), design of IoT, design for complex challenges, design of medical devices, parametric design and artificial intelligence, virtual design, food design, social design, design of wearable technology, digital craft, transportation design, new materials design, design for the other 90%, biologic design, marine design, design and space, design and ecology, and futuristic design.

The program is based on a series of active design laboratories and is led by faculty members who are considered leading researchers and creators in their fields. The curriculum integrates advanced design knowledge, new technologies and scientific research, and draws on collaborations with the Engineering and Science faculties at the Technion. The program offers a Hub of various disciplines and areas of expertise, and cultivates research, development and entrepreneurial collaborations between practitioners from different fields. Students will gain tools for collaborative work, management and methodology of innovation, and using design thinking as a theoretical and practical foundation.

The program is designed for students who work in design, engineering and related fields who are looking to expand their knowledge and professional competencies and integrate advanced design thinking into their practice, or those who wish to transition into the design professions.

The faculty also offers Doctoral Programs PH.D.
