In the current context of globalization, understanding other cultures and other value systems is a major asset for every designer. The Transcultural Design programs offer a tremendous opportunity for design students from all over the world to discover and comprehend différent cultures. This MDes program encourages the exploration and acceptance of different cultures within an applied, interdisciplinary context.
MDes Transcultural Design programs
This MDes program, leading to the master’s level degree (Diplôme de design) certified by the Ministry of higher education, deals with topics related to immersion environment (mobility, health, distribution, education, food, access to energy, waste management, environmental issues) and its specific characteristics (high population density, multiculturalism, natural resources and local crafts, democratic construction ...).
In partnership with Centech, startup accelerator of l’École de Technologie Supérieure (ÉTS), the top public engineering school in Montreal, this program allows designer students to immerse themselves in startups powered by the first French-speaking incubator in North America.
