COVID-19: From Friday March 5th until Sunday March 14th 2021, the teaching activities will continue only in telematic mode
The Specializing Master to become experts in the costruction industry with project management skills to develop products in full harmony with the built environment.
Future designers, architects and engineers will face the great challenges of the ever-changing design and building sector at local and global level, in terms of competition, development and modernization.
They shall be able to develop new ideas in the field of real estate, by designing solutions that embed advanced building components and display innovative layout designs. In particular, the field of interest concernes temporary buildings and events, reconversion of buildings and building components design.
In this perspective, the Specializing Master in Industrial Design for Architecture aims to:
The programme is designed to train professionals with design skills applied to the design of industrial products that can interact or be integrated with the built environment, or components of macrosystems increasingly industrialized, such as buildings.
The aim of the programme is to combine the knowledge coming from two sectors of excellence in Italy: design and production of components for building industry, areas that already are recognized internationally at the best level, but that can find further development opportunities, both in Italy and abroad.
The aspect that our country has a high-quality tradition in manufacturing finished elements for construction is particularly interesting, for example in the field of construction materials (bricks, aggregates, etc.) and coatings (items of pottery, mosaics, etc.), as well as there are excellent companies in production of structures and systems. Therefore, the programme offers Industrial Design skills based on Italian design/production quality that can be applied to the international market. The professionals trained in this programme will be able to manage the design complexity of the industrial product for built environment, in relation to its inclusion in the building, in companies of different productive sectors that include the production of a wide range of construction components, light and heavy prefabrication, construction products for building envelope, installation systems and functional equipment of the built environment. Students can work in companies, or design and engineering firms that ask for their interaction with the business world. The education provided by this Master includes the carrying out of lectures, seminars, exercises and workshops.
The program includes three formative areas dealing with different aspects of Industrial Design:
A fourth area will be added to these: Design Studio, which will include practical work in design on various design themes such as:
Such tasks may be individual or in teams and may envisage the participation of a leading companies in the sector of reference. The assessment achieved will constitute the basis for final marking.
The course deals with the following teaching modules:
A training period will be attended at design or architecture professional practices or companies of the building sector.
At the end of the course, upon passing the final exam, the “INDUSTRIAL DESIGN FOR ARCHITECTURE” degree will be awarded.
Students will become expert designers, with theoretical knowledge combined with significant experiences applied to the construction industry, and product manager, with a strong multidisciplinary attitude, involved in development of new products and their inclusion in the built environment.
The Specializing Master is reserved for candidates with a University Diploma or a University Degree (old Italian system degree), or a Bachelor or Master of Science (new Italian system degree) in polytechnic disciplines. As for candidates who graduated abroad, equivalent study titles in the respective educational institutions will be considered.
To take part to the selection process, the application form must be completed online within the following deadlines:
The total cost of the Master is: 12.000 € V.A.T. free according to Art. 10 Dpr 633/72.
