About the course

Innovation through synergy between creativity, science and technology to create value for society.

Innovation Design Engineering (IDE) is a unique double Master’s Programme that has been run jointly with Imperial College London for over 39 years. You’ll take advantage of the skills and cultures of two very different organisations. The result is the rigour and precision of science, technology and engineering in combination with the inspirational and creative aspects of design.

Our interdisciplinary approach focuses on the exploration and development of impactful innovation through critical observation, disruptive design thinking, experimentation, exploration of emergent technologies, advanced engineering and enterprise activities.

Vidhi Mehra

RCA is a really creative and exciting place. What I enjoyed the most about my experience at RCA and my course - IDE is the opportunities it offered to collaborate with people from different backgrounds. Looking back to my two years there, I feel I learned how to take an idea in my head to a prototype; by equipping me with all the tools to do so, and then further turn the prototype into a feasible and viable solution that can be delivered to masses. This power enables me to go be a world changer. - Vidhi Mehra, Senior User Experience Designer at LinkedIn.
