Postgraduate degree in Project Design

Course list

Awakening your curiosity & developing your imagination

The first year covers a wide range of technical and cultural learning, designed to nourish students’ creativity.

Exploring tools and building know-how

The students are immersed in the learning experience, developing their skills through the project experiences. To enable them to experiment with a more global approach, space and product design courses are added to the visual communication modules.The choice of elective modules and project workshops focused on visual communication, graphic design and digital technology, enables each student to create their own profile as a specialist designer, through the courses they choose.

Designing an approach and getting involved

Following a 4-6 month internship, students work together on real life scenarios, in a multi-disciplinary team where they develop their personal degree project.

Mastering project management and going abroad

During the first semester, the project is a vehicle for teaching new skills and knowledge, training designers to face the challenges of their chosen career and the innovation needs of companies.

There are few lecture-based courses. Through workshops and real-life case studies, the students experience dynamic, personalised learning, nourishing the development of their project by gaining expertise in marketing, finance, law, etc.

Throughout the projects, each student can therefore gain these skills, offered by a varied panel of lecturers, researchers and practitioners.

For the 1st year of the second cycle, a large part of the course is delivered in English.

Research and strategic application in a company

The 5th year is a key time prior to students joining the world of work. It’s an opportunity for them to demonstrate their capacity to manage a project independently, using all the skills acquired throughout their training.

The degree project is produced in partnership with a company, giving students the opportunity to take a step back before they begin the strategic analysis and process of innovation. Students develop the project with a company or institution, under the supervision of a design tutor, and in close collaboration with the educational team at the École Supérieure de Design de Troyes.

The project is based on a global strategic analysis that includes:

  • brand image, communication tools and media;,
  • production and optimisation of processes;
  • products, ranges and workspaces, marketing and communication;
  • design of services, usage scenarios, interfaces;
  • optimisation of the company’s environmental policy;/li>
  • bringing creativity to the company, collaborative working, artistic direction.
