The Master in Data Design (MADD) aims to train professionals in the design of information and data visualization. The program will train students to face any design problem that involves the handling of large amounts of data, complex systems or chained actions, with a critical perspective and from a solid base of graphic design.

The MADD is articulated around three modules of Fundaments and two Projects. Around it, a modular structure of Workshops and Capsules will allow us to accentuate, in each moment, the knowledge and practical challenges that the students will face. These modules will address the visualization of data, the information systems and the transmedia narrative from a rigorous practice and the desire to experiment. The practical projects will take as a framework the broader context of the city of Barcelona by collaborating with entities and professionals from other disciplines.

Among other knowledge that the experience and knowledge of the trainers will give you to achieve a higher status, Emagister and ELISAVA are willing to help you to achieve your dreams. What are you waiting for to move forward? click on "Pide information" to begin the process.
