The world of material goods design and production undergoes constant changes, constantly reflecting the changing needs, forms of communication and renewed lifestyles. This evolution raises important ethical questions and stimulates a broad conversation about what kind of society and environment we want to co-create. Within this debate, you as designer will play a key role if you are able to hold a wide vision about the relationships between products, sustainability, and urban life.
The MA in Product Design developed out of the MA in Design, first as a specialization and now as its own complete degree program.
You will learn a contemporary approach to design founded on the Italian design culture. You will explore the ideas and strategies of professional designers in order to develop your own personal design identity. You will analyze new reference scenarios on innovative topics and design or re-design objects through fostering an experiential and physical relationship with them.
Thanks to continuous interaction with faculty mentors and industry professionals, you will become a well-rounded designer who is able to direct all stages of product development, including brainstorming, design strategy, materials research, and actual production.
The MA in Product Design is recognized by the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities, and Research (MIUR) as a Master of Arts degree (120 CFs).
