Master in Digital Product Modeling


Program Description

No one doubts today that Industrial Design has undergone a great change in recent years with the incorporation and evolution of computer-aided design tools . The change from the styluses to powerful 3D modeling, prototyping and simulation programs, or the change from the markers and pencils to digital sketching and drawing tools have allowed us to streamline the design process and shorten the launch times for new products.

Due to this evolution of digital tools, the correct analysis, planning and knowledge of the environment in which the project is going to take place is particularly relevant. In order to satisfy the increasingly demanding wishes of consumers and to be able to offer innovative products, we must have an in-depth understanding of the user, their needs and their motivations. Likewise, we must pay special attention to ensuring that the products comply perfectly with the functionality for which they were designed.

Equally important, it will be having a good technical training . Knowledge of materials, production processes and costs will be essential to correctly size a project and thus optimize its final result. This will make it possible to anticipate problems in the production phase and obtain the best results.

The Master's program offers an extensive overview of some of the most popular tools for generating a product, as well as the technical knowledge and methodologies for the analysis, planning and management of a design project.


The main objectives of this program are:

  • Understand the needs of users, the proposals that the market offers as alternatives and the socio-cultural, technological or economic trends that will influence the design of a product.
  • Assimilation of the necessary processes during the design of a product, in order to plan resources, organize work teams and prepare calendars that fit the needs of the project. Calculate fees and budgets. Negotiating confidentiality and collaboration contracts with companies.
  • Obtain the necessary knowledge of various design tools that allow a correct representation and communication of ideas. Capacities will be reached for the sketching of ideas, 3D modeling and the production of technical drawings.
  • Ability to face decision making during the design process, knowing the consequences that these have on the process and the final result.
  • Have the ability to anticipate to avoid production problems and thus optimize the results of the design process.
  • Have the necessary tools to adapt the design process to the needs of the client and the product.
  • Know the creativity and analysis techniques that allow generating innovative solutions.
