DEPARTMENT OF DESIGN PRODUCT-SPACE-ENVIRONMENT

DEPARTMENT OF DESIGN PRODUCT-SPACE-ENVIRONMENT

The aim of this department is to train professionals capable of working methodically and consciously in order to improve living environments through the design of innovative, practical and functional solutions/products of great industrial scope. The training takes into account the culture of the environment, the tradition of applied arts, the culture of industrial design and the applications of new technologies on design. It leads the student to enter the world of business with full intellectual awareness and the indispensable operative instruments; to make creative designs and realisations of modern design products; to set up the development of new lines and products that are strongly oriented towards innovation. The design and development of 3D products explain how to translate concepts into digital designs, manufacture them using 3D printers and transform them into finished products.
The department foresees a wider conceptual field of action, whether as part of a creative team in companies with high-design potential, or as an Art Director in different sectors of goods production. Internships in local companies complete the training.
