Program Description:

In response to the needs and market trends, IAAD offers two Master Programmes. The consolidated Master in Transportation Design (already in its fourth edition) is accompanied, since the a.y. 2014-2015, the new Master in Digital 3D Modelling for Transportation design - from the CAS to the fundamentals for surfaces of class A and B. With the aim to ensure educational excellence and the development of a didactic model updated and dynamic, able to act as "innovation centre", the master course identifies the methodological attitude and flexibility in teaching the instrument to ensure constant updating of professional profiles. In all disciplines, the teaching program provides continuous phases of interaction between theoretical and practical experiments, identifying in the laboratory the place of educational research. The Master aims to train young professionals able to offer innovative solutions and manage the process of development of the project: creative designers able to control the conceptual and technological-productive aspects, who can interpret the socio-cultural awareness and economic market, careful to grasp the moods that lead to innovative solutions in content and form that draw on the various design disciplines, artistic and cultural, having the tools to interpret and predict the dynamics of the market. To design is therefore essential to know how to handle cultural, conceptual, technological, and potential means of expression, directing the creation of innovative products and services: the compliance of the design with respect to the environment is crucial for the creation of a contemporary professional figure, prepared and conscious, consistent with the needs of the market and the world of production. Thanks to the active support of the partner companies - made concrete in the construction of special lectures, workshops, seminars, internships, projects and thesis - the syllabus uses specific and constantly updated instruments, design-oriented and focused in the area of mobility and the main means of transport. The entire didactic path is structured to deal with an advanced level design, taking into account technology, manufacture, environment, ergonomics and marketing, promoting flexibility, management skills and an aptitude for team-working. The aim is to unite the world of industry, the research and experimentation through the study of projects sponsored by the industry itself.
