In recent years there has been growing recognition in public organizations and private companies of the exceptional value of practical knowledge in design coupled with an in-depth understanding of the social and economic challenges of our time and advanced technological skills:
those who can offer a true multidisciplinary service will be able to lead management, research, and development processes - not only in architecture, design, and planning firms, but also for a wide range of organizations engaging in a variety of aspects, including companies specializing in smart city or transportation technologies, strategic planning departments in local authorities, in government ministries, and social organizations.
In order to train multidisciplinary designers, the M.Des. Program in Interior, Building, and Environment Design combines a joint inquiry of design, society, and technology.
Central to the program is engagement in creating new living environments, in the connection between the individual and his living environments, in critical thinking about the effects of the technological revolution on various spaces, and in the required change in definitions of the design professions and the role of designers in contemporary society.
The program is designed for excellent professionals from different disciplines whose work has direct and indirect implications for spatial design, including architects, designers, planners, and technology professionals (software developers, engineers, and so forth). Accordingly, the multidisciplinary teaching faculty comprises architects, designers, and planners, as well as leading researchers in the fields of culture and society, and professionals engaged in the practical and theoretical aspects of spatial technology.
