Master of Design - Integrated Product Design | Anant National University

A unique programme offered in collaboration with the University of Pennsylvania, MDes-IPD combines the disciplines of engineering, management and design to train students to develop the student’s ability to analyse any challenge from multiple perspectives and solve for it in a holistic fashion.

Students learn the fundamentals of conceptualising, designing, and creating original products, while also building skills in business planning and professional development, required to help prepare them for future roles as entrepreneurs, designers, design researchers, product engineers, and leaders of front-end innovation teams.

The programme is open to all individuals who have a keen interest in solving problems through design. Those with backgrounds in engineering, design, or entrepreneurship, along with an interest in product design are especially encouraged to apply.
