Product Innovation ME310 Stanford (Misto)

This Postgraduate Program uses the tools and methodologies of design thinking and aims to provide students with a work experience in interdisciplinary and international teams, working on challenges launched by some of the most important national and international companies and developing new products and innovative services.

The ME310 Porto is a postgraduate program in Product and Service Innovation developed by the School of Media, Arts and Design, under the framework of the Porto Design Factory and Stanford University Global Alliance for Redesign. The program implies 40 hours of work per week and includes various trips, from visits to academic partners to field work, observation and benchmarking in international markets considered essential. In ME310 Porto, student teams work on innovation challenges proposed by the companies during a nine-month period. Through these projects, students undergo an intensive and interactive process of needfinding, brainstorming and rapid prototyping to create and develop new concepts of products and services. The cooperation of companies such as IKEA Industry, SONAE, FORD and SILAMPOS provides a real context for all innovation work. At the end, the teams present proof of concept that include functional prototypes and all the documentation that captures not only the essence of the proposed solution, but also the learning process that resulted in the tested ideas.
