Professional Master of Design-Engineering


The curriculum of our graduate school is designed to help students develop practical abilities in the design industry. The program will focus in understanding design thinking, problem-solving, engineering knowledge and industrial technologies. Every semester students will learn necessary skills and integrated knowledge in developing a new product by participating in projects by collaborating with a company. By learning from company experts and advisory professors, students will acquire in-depth field knowledge. During the end of the semester, students will exhibit their working prototype of their service/ product and will apply for a patent. Knowledge that is needed for product development can be learned by taking separate specific courses. 



For graduation, there will be an individual 1 year graduation project with a sponsoring company, developing a product. Students are expected to write a

graduation paper based upon their project progress and at the pinnacle, exhibit their working prototype that is both functional and aesthetic. Company experts

and advisory professors will all participate as the project progresses.

CDE graduate school aims to foster professional design-engineering experts to lead industrial and societal innovation, and professional researchers who can make pragmatic contributions within interdisciplinary design and engineering fields. Master program provides a unique curriculum to train professional design engineers and equip them with creativity in their approaches to design thinking, problem-solving, engineering knowledge and understanding of industrial technologies. Every semester, students will carry out new product development projects in ‘project-based industry collaborative courses,’ through which they will learn the necessary knowledge and skills for holistic product development. Student learning takes a balanced approach between contemporary theoretical knowledge and its pragmatic application through projects supervised by academic and industrial experts. At the end of the semester, students demonstrate working prototypes of new product, product-service, or product-system concepts and file related patents. Discipline-specific knowledge and skills, required for product development, will be taught through discrete courses. For the ‘Master Graduation Project,’ every student performs an independent product development project for one year. By the project’s end, students are requested to submit a project report in a thesis format and to exhibit the developed products, to a high level of functional and/or aesthetic fidelity, culminating in the final degree show. Project progress and outcomes are continuously evaluated by academic and industry experts. PhD students will carry out practice-based design research projects whose outcomes are aimed at impact for industrial and societal development. Thus, practicability and applicability of research outcomes are important measures of success. This program is open to engineering or design-major graduates, and individuals with industry experience who have passion to create the future.
