UBCO unveils Master of Design program


University of British Columbia Okanagan has developed an interdisciplinary Master of Design graduate program, which will focus on addressing local and global challenges. The 12-month program will teach critical design thinking, creative practice, and engineering principles through workshops, seminars, hands-on experiences, studio time, and mentorship. The program incorporates experiential and community-based approaches. “There is a growing trend that challenges are becoming more complicated, and the solutions for these challenges need to be more creative and innovative,” said UBCO Assistant Professor of Engineering Alon Eisenstein.
