Design for Plastics
The design development of products to be made in plastic
VIII Edition

The course was developed from an idea of Sergio Antonio Salvi and covers the management and design development of products to be made in plastic.
Inspired by the principles of the "design for X", concept from which most modern industrial production strategies were born, the course aims to produce highly professional individuals: after training, the design manager will be able to independently manage the design and development of products in plastic, both on a cultural and technical-scientific level, as well as follow the process of prototyping and manufacturing.
The course develops from a "cultural" model to the theoretical and technical foundations related to the design of objects in plastic. This will be followed by laboratory work in which a design context will be identified allowing students to test the knowledge gained through design exercises and field experience. At the CESAP laboratories, for example, students will have the opportunity to meet with highly experienced specialists who will guide them in some visits, showing test equipment, mould manufacturing technologies and some production processes.
Teaching may be supplemented by additional outside activities such as visits to museums, industry exhibitions, model and tool producers and manufacturing sites.
The course is aimed at graduates from schools and faculties of design, engineering and architecture; however, it is accessible to industry technicians and contractors able to display evidence of design training, or experience. Candidate profiles not matching these categories may be evaluated by management for admission.
80 hours.
Admission to the course is limited to a select number of participants and is subject to a selection process that will be carried out via a direct interview with the teachers who will run the course.
Before the interview, candidates should send a CV describing in brief their training and any professional experience. 
Thursday, from 14:00 to 18:00 and Friday, from 9:00 to 18:00. 
The course costs € 1.300 + VAT (22%).
