This professional formation is founded on scientific and technological achievements that match the reality of the market since staff seek to ensure that students acquire specific knowledge thoroughly. This results in students being able to specify, develop, implement and evaluate projects that seek to solve problems of a diverse nature by exploiting physical or digital artifacts, various services, and other means of tackling problems. In addition, the objective is to deepen students’ competencies even more, since these target practical and technical issues of scientific research in the area of the Design of Digital Artifacts.
CESAR’s Professional Masters in the Design of Digital Artifacts has been and is innovative in several respects. First of all, it is one of only three such courses in the North/Northeast of Brazil in this category, of which two are run by CESAR (in Recife and Manaus). These two courses are pioneering in their approach to forming professionals because their differential is to use a methodology which adds even more value to the practices of the market and at the same time offer a strictu sensu formation.
Thus, CESAR’S PMD sets out to offer a qualification at the cutting-edge by preparing professionals for research and deepening their knowledge and to do so by adding the following to their profile:
• A systemic vision that is integrated into research in the area of the Design of Digital Artifacts;
• The capacity, grounded in the concepts acquired, to design, develop, implement, validate, manage and evaluate projects, whether these are physical or digital artifacts, or to do with services;
• Students are able to conduct research and make design solutions viable for various areas of knowledge and of application;
• Students acquire knowledge in a broad spectrum of spheres offered in the Masters, including matters related to the evolution of the area of Design, so that they are able to understand the present situation and project what will evolve in the future;
• Students understand the relevance of giving value to the user both in the process of interaction with systems as well as by involving users in the production of knowledge/ artifacts;
• Students acquire knowledge of the techniques used in developing systems and products that not only facilitate the understanding of human-machine interaction, but of the activities involved in this relationship.
• Students acquire in-depth knowledge of the theoretical, scientific and technological matters related to the area of Design and the areas adjacent to it;
• Students are able to work in interdisciplinary teams and to develop logical reasoning effectively;
Access to the network of partnerships with leading-edge technology companies in Brazil and throughout the world is an important factor that is worth emphasizing. This sees to it that those who take CESAR´s PMD are well-placed to find job openings in a highly competitive market.
Another large differential of the PMD lies in the formation and experience of its teaching staff. They have a broad view of the market and are professionals who have distinguished themselves in areas that include Design, Computing and Engineering. Their academic excellence is brought to bear on various and important research projects which will form part of the everyday routines of the future Masters in Design.
The PMD seeks professionals with a degree in higher level or technological courses (degrees recognized by MEC, the Brazilian Ministry of Education and Culture), in line with the areas of Design, Innovation, Engineering, ICT and the like, or else, graduates with proven experience of a minimum of three (3) years’ professional activity in the area of Design.
Up to 24 months.
• 360 hours of face-to-face classes;
• 32 (thirty-two hours) of face-to-face monitoring, besides distance monitoring throughout the course;

For CESAR’s PMD, an academic structure divided into three modules has been developed: Studios, Disciplines and a Research Project. The structure of the curriculum comprises compulsory and optional subjects, consisting of elements that are interleaved and add to the cohesion of the program.
First of all, the Master´s student can define his intellectual affinities with the area and with the latest research studies in the area of design, especially at the strictu sensu level, and from the second stage, in which these are distributed through the elective subjects, the student can work more specifically not only on the themes with which he/she has affinity, but also on topics that can lead to their re-examining their dissertation and making it much better argued, thus breaking away from individualism, given that the subjects are studied in groups. Clearly such conduct often leads to scientific production of a better quality, which enables differentiated and more enriching ways of looking at a problem and its possible solutions. Thereafter, comes the area of concentration and the lines of research of CESAR’s PMD:
Design of Digital Artifacts
This area of concentration brings together lines of research linked to the study of design methods and practices within the context of planning, developing and using new technologies related to design, IT, Communication, Interaction and Consumption. The topics covered by this set of lines are focused on the technological components, economic and social components of design as a driver of aspects linked to innovation.
Methodologies for Conceptualizing Digital Artifacts
This line includes the research fields on the dialogue between design and analysis methodologies for conceptualizing and analyzing Design tools, and is mainly focused on the object called “digital artifacts”.
It discusses project concepts and methods that form part of design processes to solve problems in emerging technologies and to transform the current technological and industrial products into integrated systems, which are competitive in order to keep up with the digital evolution of society.
The focus of this line is to enhance the skills of the designer as an agent of innovation who is able to analyze and systematize broader contexts which involve not only socio-cultural behavior but also the specific sets of problems that are likely to enrich innovative solutions within his/her professional world (business, industry, society).
Digital Innovation and Culture
This line involves research studies on conceptualizing digital artifacts and the dialogue between conceptualizing and implementing new technological artifacts. This includes research on the act of design itself with regard to aspects of innovation, culture and technology, which target the area of research in design with a focus on digital artifacts.
A reflection is proposed on research methods and an understanding of everyday technology environments in order to discern the solutions better – whether these are interfaces, products or systems – and on their impact on the context of groups of companies or individuals.
Disciplines and practical activities in an environment that sets out to solve real market problems which simulate a design studio and is monitored by a team of academic and market experts. Such subjects will cover the entire process of contemporary design in accordance with the following steps:
The observation process requires a series of research activities and analyses for which the design needed to build its own methods that were appropriate to the depth for which the data are suitable. These data expand continuously and promote the process of generating ideas.
The specific moment at which ideas are generated can be seen as the most creative point of design which makes use of techniques that facilitate this process of ideation which is prompted by the results of the observation studies. The conception, however, is not limited to the generation of ideas in itself. What must be done efficiently is to select the ideas generated and to refine them.
The configuration of the artifact is usually based on a set of iterative cycles that promote an evolution of its form ranging from draft outlines until we arrive at functional prototypes that very nearly resemble the artifact that will be made available to the end user.
From the moment at which the product is about to reach the point of being launched on the market, the designer starts on a new cycle of activities, namely, a process of seeking information about the artifact in order to propose adjustments which promote continuous improvements in the artifact. Recent methods of dealing with large volumes of data have been demonstrated.
