For DuocUC’s School of Design, DESIGN is interpreted as an essential element in each one of mankind’s activities, and as such is explored in all of its forms and manifestations, always in extremely close contact with both the national and international industry. This happens because of the conviction that it is a discipline which has as its main asset in the incorporation of added value throughout all of the production process. This is why it has always been a main concern to keep a strong, tight bond with the World’s biggest and most important design centers, by way of tight collaboration projects. With the latter, and going along with the institutional mission guidelines, as well as considering a scenario where Chile’s Design Industry stands a bit under developed, the school has proposed itself to widen its field of action within the market, incorporating the educational development both to corporate and strategic fields. Duoc UC offers professional degrees in Industrial Design, Graphic Design, Fashion Design, Illustration, Interior Design and associate degrees in Web Production, Graphic Design Technician, Industrial Clothing Production Technician, with study programs that consider the present and future of each discipline, with a technological environment that facilitates the knowledge learning and the development of abilities in the different design areas, maintaining a tight and constant contact with production and service companies, both national and international, in the same design areas as the ones featured in each program. DuocUC has a total of 79.803 students distributed across different headquarters within the Metropolitan, V and VIII regions. Of that number, 5401 students belong to the School of Design, comprised of 8 programs distributed across four sites within the Santiago Metropolitan Region (San Carlos de Apoquindo, Alameda, Plaza Oeste and Plaza Vespucio), one site in the Valparaiso Region (Viña del Mar) and one final site in the Biobio Region (San Andrés de Concepción). This School of Design is considered the most important in the country, holding 34% of the academic offer in the design area. Internationalization Since the beginning of the School of Design Duoc UC have established strong links with international institutions. Through participation in Associations, Conventions, Programs and Short Courses Internships and Exchange students may contact other community realities in the world. Since then, having an active participation in international networks (ICSID, Cumulus, DESIS, Design Factory Network) has allowed real contact with other institutions, project development and transfer of methodologies, experiences and know-how that nourishes the curriculum of our students.
