Program content

Methodology and structure– In three years, students acquire the worldwide famous Italian design culture, with origins in Leonardo’s genius, capable of expressing works of great aesthetic, functional and emotional value. 

To undertake a professional career, students get a wide range of competences: cultural, technical and based on project development. Cultural elements connected to design, architecture and art are analysed but also sociology and anthropology, necessary to comprehend and interpret the evolutionary phenomena of behaviour, the main subject of design. 
Students are introduced to marketing, a fundamental tool for analysing brand values and corporate market positioning of the companies they work with, and for reading and anticipating consumer needs and trends. 

Students develop their own solid project development method that, starting from ethical, social and sustainability values, allows them to acquire a mindset for strategic design. This design method is completed by the study of tools to develop, assess and explain a project: the pencil, 3D modelling software, rendering, lab work for the construction of models and prototypes using 3D printers. Thanks to the electronic prototyping platform Arduino, students are able to experiment the interaction between functions of the object and people’s behaviour.
