Multidisciplinary Integration

Learn to observe and analyse projects, integrate design in all fields, detect and exploit business opportunities, and manage multidisciplinary teams. In four years you will be able to conceptualise, create and communicate your own design project, whether it is an event, a studio, a product or a service.



The Undergraduate Degree in Design has a four-year structure. The first two are made up of core subjects and basic training, where students develop work and tasks from the syllabus.

Specialized subjects start to be delivered in the third year, which help to deepen the theoretical knowledge and specific practices of each track.

Final Project Degree. Specialty in Multidisciplinary Integration: "CO: Encuentros Creativos" by Elena Izna Qureshi.


At ESDi, we encourage our students to travel through our exchange programs with international universities who are leaders in the different disciplines of design. We have more than 50 agreements with various institutions across Latin America, Asia, the Middle East and Europe, including some universities specialized in design management such as: Lahti University of Applied Sciences (Finland) or Copenhagen School of Design and Technology (KEA).

We put our trust in mobility programs, both for students and (teaching) staff, as a way to exchange resources, knowledge and methodologies that will enrich and complete the international experience of studying design at ESDi.

Final Degree

The Final Project is the last educational task to evaluate the knowledge that students have acquired during the course of their studies. It's a project that should make use of skills in planning, conceptual thinking and production. The work is carried out individually, with the help of a tutor. Each specialization has its own specific regulations.
