Master of Integrated Product Design

A unique two-year programme designed in collaboration with the University of Pennsylvania, M:IPD combines the disciplines of engineering, management and design. It helps students develop the ability to analyse any challenge from multiple perspectives, and find solutions from a holistic perspective.

Students learn the fundamentals of conceptualising, designing, and creating original products, while also building skills in business planning and professional development. The programme equips them for future roles of entrepreneurs, designers, design researchers, product engineers, or 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.

An Innovative Curriculum

The M:IPD programme is built around a learning-by-doing model offering traditional and modular courses that draw from design, engineering, and business disciplines. It emphasises independent as well as collaborative work, and students produce multiple outputs throughout the coursework.
