Exchange students can enroll in the International Class and choose one of the following programs, depending on their profile :

DN MADE Retail & Interior Design

For students with a background in spatial design, interior design or scenography

This option aims to explore the relationships between the services resulting from all new human activities (commercial or otherwise) and the buildings, interior and exterior spaces that define the environment of these activities and the objects that result from them.

DN MADE Industrial Products
For students with a background in industrial or product design

This design approach focuses on industrial design. A wide array of tools used in industry must be used to create products and services that are centered on the user, his environment and his expectations. In this way the designer can use his know-how to help companies design and manufacture products which take into account the needs and expectations of their users.
