Innovation Certificate


dLab is a groundbreaking, interdisciplinary innovation program where students from 5 faculties (Architecture and Advertising joined the programme in 2014), develop real solutions which create deep social impact. The innovation stems from the way we have developed a program over 7 years which combines an applied innovation methodology, with an interdisciplinary approach and comes up with practical solutions to real problems facing society, not only in Chile but globally. dLab offers and delivers diverse skills to its students so that they can be true changemaker agents in this kind of environment.

dLab has served as an innovation lab where we have been able to develop new teaching methodologies and test new ways of cross-faculty collaboration. Many of these are reflected in UDD Futuro, our recently launched long-term strategic development plan.
