Study programme

During the degree, you will learn to handle the tools to allow you to represent your ideas graphically and you will build your designs in our workshops and laboratories.

Similarly, through projects in collaboration with local companies, you will acquire the necessary knowledge about their operation, industrial manufacturing, the behaviour and characteristics of materials, as well as everything related to product engineering. You will also work on aspects such as the appearance of the product, marketing, ergonomics, usability, sustainability and innovation.
