Applications are now open to come study at UBC Okanagan in our Master of Design (MDes) program. We are looking for our first cohort of people working towards solving critical problems facing humanity. Our goal is to help you do that.

The MDes degree is a full-time, 12-month professional graduate-level program intended to help students build design solutions for global challenges. The program blends critical design thinking, creative practice and engineering principles within a culture of innovation, creativity and social and sustainable entrepreneurship.

Courses focus on community-based creative approaches to project design as well as the conceptualization and preparation for prototyping and presentation of projects. The program is experiential by design, and students will learn through workshops, seminars, lectures, hands-on experiences, studio time and ongoing mentorship.

Prospective students are invited to attend either of the sessions below and will have a chance to ask questions about the program and to answer your questions as you prepare your application and portfolio for admission.
