The aim of today's education lies not in the transfer of specific reproductive skills but in the cultivation of creative skills based on practical and scientific knowledge. The University has a generalist approach aimed at the encouragement of lateral thinking across a wide spectrum, from communication to product systems and environmental design, and at thrusting the designer to the forefront as a critic, mediator, and developer. In a rapidly changing culture an essential component of the philosophy is to enable the students to become autonomously self-developing and thus adaptable to continuous change.
