RUBIKA

Founded in 1988, the RUBIKA School of Design is a leading institution in the field of higher education in design. Our school has earned this position for many reasons: teaching by working professionals, prestigious partners (Decathlon, Kiska, Renault, Ducati, Cartier, etc.) and graduates working in the biggest design studios.

A PROFESSIONAL DESIGN SCHOOL

By joining RUBIKA, you will benefit from all the advantages of a consistent, structured and professional curriculum. Our programs are spread over five years of study. The teaching is progressive and intensive, focusing firstly on learning the fundamentals of design and secondly on its management and operational control in companies. At the end of their training, our students are capable of proposing and implementing a design strategy with high added value.

Throughout the course, our students develop their skills through individual and collective projects. The teaching team, composed of professional designers, ensures the learning of a methodology tested in design studios around the world: analysis of the project and the user, drafting of specifications, creativity and ideation phase, prototyping, development and communication. A large part of the training is devoted to management and interpersonal skills, applied in various group projects.

The graduation presentations are given in front of an international jury composed of design professionals… These presentations are systematically given in English. The students present their projects and their most convincing achievements, which are sometimes industrialised.
