The EINA Design Degree is an official title offered by the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB)
The EINA design university studies are shaped using a designer’s training in the general meaning as a start point to work towards the specialization through the mentions offered:
From the 2nd year itineraries for obtaining the mention are recommended. This will become effective in the 3rd and 4th years, studying at least 5 of the 6 optional subjects that form one of the mentions.
Nevertheless the student could also opt for no specialization or a combination of several mentions becoming a designer with a hybrid profile.
In the same way that a designer’s professional practice requires specialized skills in the aforementioned skills, it also requests generic designers who are able to work on different fields or coordinate specialized designers and establish interdisciplinary dynamics providing a wide range of criteria and approaches. The mechanism of EINA’s Design Degree facilitates this training and therefore allows curricular itineraries outside the listed mentions.
