The PhD can vary depending on the institution and country in which it is awarded. Most scholars pursue a PhD because of strong motivation to contribute to the academic community as well as true curiosity about their chosen field of study.
Design studies are often a fusion of engineering principles and design. Architecture, graphic design, retail merchandising, and apparel design are informed by design studies coursework. Designing on digital platforms and fabrication of product prototypes are practiced in design labs.

Design Studies graduate program has been established with the aim of uniting all design disciplines in order to make these more creative by interacting. The program commenced its facilities in the 2006-2007 academic year, though advanced level research in Design Studies area is needed. That is why the doctoral program of Design Studies is going to admit students in the 2013-2014 academic year for the first time.
The priority of the program is to be creative in the design field. It is aimed to make further research and acknowledge the innovational updates on environmental design, interior architectural design, industrial design, fashion and textile design, visual communication design. That is why the curriculum of the program has many options in manners of the elective courses. Students may choose related elective courses for their individual research. As soon as the courses are completed, students start to write their doctoral theses after their qualification exam and thesis proposal. Design Studies doctoral program also allows students to accomplish conjunct doctoral studies....

The Design Ph.D. is essentially oriented towards the Thesis which students start working on from day one. It is also a Doctorate based on an understanding of what it means to be a Designer and what Designing is.
At IADE, students have the opportunity to study and research design with designers by profession and to be a part of a reputable Design Research Unit - UNIDCOM/IADE.
This Ph.D. is led by a faculty with extensive professional experience and has an environment conducive to the development of a strong bond between the professor and the student, which is key to developing and supervising a doctoral thesis.
The doctoral programme also affords students the possibility to access public examination to obtain the title of 'Agregado' in Design....

Human factors research focuses on the multidisciplinary research spanning studies of the interaction between humans, machines, and technology to develop the products and
PhD topics can cover many different fields within this discipline, for example, design, manufacturing, assembly, measurement, testing, and modeling.
This course requires a 2:1 or international equivalent and/or a master's degree at merit level or above in a relevant subject, and an IELTS level 6.0 (5.5 in each element). It is usually completed over a period of around three years.
Within the Human Factors Research Group (HFRG) we possess a wide range of technical facilities which are used for research and consultancy projects, as well as for teaching.The Usability and Ergonomics Laboratory constitutes a self-contained space containing a wide range of video and data capture equipment. As a result, we are able to conduct usability and ergonomics evaluation studies in which participants’ behavior can be observed and measured in a controlled fashion.The HFRG Transport Simulation Laboratory enables our research work to be conducted in a safe, controlled and cost-effective environment. This has been of specific importance in out transport-related work, where we currently possess hi-fidelity car, motorcycle, and train simulators....

PhD in Design, Technology & Society
Developments in current technology offer a wide range of opportunities for creative industries. There are eight fundamental fields in the global market where creative industry can grow: design, film production, music, animation, interactive media, computer games, digital advertisement, gastronomy and cultural heritage. Creative industries need scholars and professionals who can use interdisciplinary thinking skills to develop new approaches to the utilization of display technologies and digital products. All over the world, there is an expanding need for experts who can creatively manage the convergence of different communication platforms, who can analyze, anticipate and address the changing needs and expectations of individuals (as consumers or as citizens)....
