FROM OUR DIRECTOR
“As a profession, ‘designer’ is constantly evolving. Historically, a person would study graphic design, industrial design, or interior design, since there were a finite number of professions with design needs. In the near future, you could be an artificial organ designer, a cybernetic director, or fusionist. We’re starting to see that design and creativity are needed to confront an increasing number of more difficult tasks. Everyday life has become more complex, and new challenges need creative professionals capable of tackling them”.
Edgar González – Director of the Bachelor in Design
THE FABLAB AT IE UNIVERSITY
The Fabrication Laboratory or “FabLab” is an important part of our “culture of making.” It is a space for students to experiment with digital and traditional woodworking tools to fuel practical constructional understanding. The FabLab is divided into two: the digital part with a CNC router, laser cutters and 3D printers, and the other with traditional, hands-on carpentry tools.
This gives you the chance to put your work together in a computerized format, allowing you to make any necessary alterations to your design while also providing you with a platform to incorporate this function into other creations.Explore the Fab Lab
