DESIGN by DATA is a new Advanced Master Program

by HDA Paris

This post is to announce a new partnership we are very proud of : together with École Nationale des Ponts et Chaussées, Paris College of Art, Gaîté Lyrique, VOLUMES coworking and WOMA fablab we are taking part to a new exciting Advanced Master Program in Computational Design & Making.
The aim of the Advanced Master is to provide students with a cross-disciplinary culture of computational design, from parametricism to extensive knowledge of the impact of digital design and making tools in arts, design, urban planning, architecture and engineering. The training has been designed as an augmented experience including courses, prototyping workshops, conferences, maker-spaces visits and networking events. The courses and conferences will take place in different locations in Paris, making this training a true opportunity to discover innovation hot-spots in the capital.
