At the d.school, 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.
