Course content

The Innovation Design Engineering (IDE) programme is a leading-edge creative product development course, which involves experimentation, design, engineering and enterprise activities.

The degree programme has now been running for over 30 years, and has produced some of the world’s leading designers working in companies such as Philips, IDEO, Apple, Sony and Samsung.

A significant proportion of graduates go on to set up their own enterprises on leaving the programme. Recent examples include Omlet, Bare Conductive and Concrete Canvas.

In multidisciplinary teams or as individuals, participants work at the centre of complex and demanding projects with an emphasis on prototyping and proving design and enterprise propositions.

The course is managed jointly by the School of Design at the Royal College of Art (RCA) and the Dyson School of Design Engineering at Imperial.

Successful completion of the 21-month course leads to the award of the MA (Royal College of Art) and MSc (Imperial College London).
