Take a class at the d.school
Take on real-life projects in our spaces, practice “learning by doing” and gain confidence in innovation process, applying design thinking.
At d.school Paris, we design industry relevant, professional curriculum that teaches students the processes, frameworks and methodologies of Design Thinking. All our curriculum is designed by a team of industry experts, working professionals and academicians ensuring the right blend of industry knowledge, practical learning and a focused teaching pedagogy.
We follow a teaching pedagogy that is light on theory and heavy on practice. The curriculum covers class material, student practice material, assignments & projects, internships, reference material and teacher training material. Our teaching pedagogy ensures that students get the maximum opportunity to practice and learn by doing, in turn ensuring that they are industry ready after the course is completed.
We offer 2 formats for the study of design thinking: full-time or part-time. The ME310 Design Innovation program is the only full-time course covering an academic year: it admits students from any French educational institution and from all disciplines. The other programs are half-day modules over one semester, which form part of the curriculum for students in our consortium (ENPC, EIVP, UPEM, ESIEE, and EAVT).
Each course includes a real-world output that creates value for the partner, by reinventing an experience for target users. To achieve this outcome, students learn by iterative practice at each stage of the process: listening, imagining, designing, and producing are key activities.
