About this program

Master of Arts (Biennio Specialistico) in Transdisciplinary Design - Torino

If we truly want to create a meaningful future for mobility, we need to transcend the traditional borders between disciplines to create a transdisciplinary and exciting approach of mobility.

The role of mobility in our lives can hardly be overestimated, and it is crystal clear that its importance and challenges are only rising. A growing amount of vehicles and changing behaviours put immense stress on our infrastructures, mobility planners rethink how to move in our cities, parcel delivery thrives as never before, new mobility services are mushrooming the app stores, and lawmakers struggle to embed the accelerating technologic opportunities into slow moving policies. During the two years of the Master of Arts you will become part of IED's transdisciplinary mobility studio, approaching the topic from every possible angle.

The first year is all about hands-on exploring: we kick off by setting the mobility field and delve into a broad range of interesting tools and methods to study and work within it. The classes are a vibrant mix of theory and practice in which we learn from experts in the field and put everything to the test by doing and experimenting. Then the program offers a diverse range of students access to aunique approach to the development of design as a holistic and strategic tool for the identification and interrogation of complex problems in the domain of mobility. Students will have the chance to work on live challenges using cities as crucibles for finding and defining complex problems which cannot be addressed, resolved or solved through one discipline alone.

Admission requirements

This Master of Arts is ideal for anyone who has a genuine interest in the multifaceted nature of mobility with a willingness to alter the path of where it's going. It will prepare to work in the forefront of the thrilling future of mobility. Just like the transdisciplinary field of ecology brought forth much sought-after ecologists, people steeped in the transdisciplinary field of mobility will become increasingly valuable.
