The transition of the modern world from "society of goods" to "society of services" gives designers the chance to explore the ethics of design more thoroughly.
In the post-industrial era, individuals are discovering the limits of progress, and are working to establish a sustainable relation with nature and environment. Therefore, many design projects are now developing both social responsible production strategies and a smart integration into online services networks and artificial intelligences.
Over the Two-year MA, the students will prepare their future professional life by analyzing scenarios and designing or re-designing objects and services through the development of a physical, experience based relation with them.
Thanks to the constant interaction with professors and professionals, the students become full-scale designers, capable of managing all the development phases of a material or non-material product from its conception to the actual manufacture, through the definition of the design and prototyping strategy.
The MA in Design - Product and Service Design is recognized by the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities, and Research (MIUR) as a Master of Arts degree (120 CFA).
