The curriculum of the Transcultural Design China Studio Master’s program is based on a strong relation with businesses and industries, through collaborative projects, internships and involvement of professional designers and lecturers from the most prestigious Chinese or International companies and design studios.
Our industry partners in China are both local and international companies, which supply us with applied projects, staff, and jurors. With their help, we can provide students with contacts for internships. It has also allowed us to schedule regularly live projects during which students usually work in teams, solving design problems stemming directly from an applied context, which means their work often sees realization.
The companies are covering all disciplines from product design to interior, graphic, and interaction design. Input from staff and industry-sourced advisors adds an element of guidance that regular industry projects do not benefit from, and define the added value of these projects for our industry partners, and for our students.
During the second half of the study year, the companies take on the role of a mentor, sending project supervisors to discuss diploma project work with students individually, and guest speakers to illuminate various topics pertaining to design. They also provide the school, throughout the year, with qualified jurors who give input and mark the students work.
