Message from the President
Prof. Takahito Saiki, President, Kobe Design University
Kobe Design University Graduate School is one of the few postgraduate institutions in Japan conducting
comprehensive education and research in design and art. In addition to studying their specialized programs of
choice, Kobe Design University Graduate School students study design theories forming the backbone of
academic activities, as well as state-of-the-art science and technology.
“Arts and design” is an area of study for fostering—through training in arts and culture rooted in human activities
and history, and academic activities in design and art that draw on the strengths of science and
technology—advanced levels of expertise demanded by the times and by society, as well as rich creativity, flexible
conceptual power, and an unconventional, yet solid ability to express thoughts and ideas.
From its establishment in 1993 to the end of March 2016, Kobe Design University Graduate School has conferred
Master’s Degrees (in Arts and Design) to 473 students, and Doctoral Degrees (in Arts and Design) to 56 students,
who have then gone on to advance their careers at Japanese and overseas corporations, and research and
educational institutions. They have also achieved remarkable success in various competitions, and many of their
papers have been awarded by the Design Research Association.
Our graduate students hail from many countries, including China, South Korea, Iran, India, Tunisia, Bosnia,
Myanmar, Dominican Republic, Portugal, Argentina, Poland, Lebanon, Russia, Nepal, Ireland, Venezuela, Brazil,
and Thailand. Contact with different cultures and values encourages the production of diverse designs and ideas.
I sincerely hope that each of you experience a fruitful and rewarding time at this innovative and unique Graduate

The profile of the new graduate program in transdisciplinary design at Folkwang University of the Arts revolves around Foucaults concept of »Heterotopia«, which stands for discourse, reflection and confrontation between various disciplines within a heterogeneous community. The 3-year graduate program concludes with the degree »Folkwang Letter of Design« (180 credit points / equivalent to the Master of Arts). It is an ideal preparation for a following doctorate.
Heterotopia places its students as independent »authors« into the centre of their graduate study program. Students have the choice to join seven studios of different design fields in which they can develop their own research project guided by chosen mentors. Within this joint exploration the students can train their design and research skills in theory and practice.
