Course programme

[Taught both in Italian or English]

The Master’s Program in Product Design is a graduate level laboratory for postProduct design. Students and faculty are actively exploring how to design for new social conditions in which behavioral, material, technological, and natural landscapes are shifting. We are committed to developing new models of design practice that are multidisciplinary, collaborative, and team-based. We stress process, with an emphasis on research, conceptualization, communication, and appropriate form giving. The program itself is a-year-long: curriculum consisting of studio, methods, and seminar course content is integrated around studio-based projects. Projects range from the development of new urban industries to incubating independent publishing labels for hard and soft design. By providing research proposals, future studies, and case studies, we are promoting a new, more pro-active role for design education. Because design is a collaborative profession, most studio projects will be team-based. The final semester of the program is devoted to a master’s thesis in which the candidate will work more independently with a group of internal faculty and/or outside professionals to develop a thesis project that must advance the candidate’s chosen field of study. Like the program itself, the faculty represents a wide range of approaches to the practice of design. This means that students have access to currently practicing design professionals with backgrounds in fields ranging from architecture, graphic design, cultural anthropology, and psychology to Product, systems and environmental design. The Product design department offers a unique faculty who share a common philosophy and commitment to the design process.
