An Industrial Designer conceives and designs products for the industrial system. Each product is addressed not only to a potential market, but also to the society that has its own consumer rituals and manners. The designer has the ability to foresee the impact his product will have on a social and environmental level too. Studying product design in Milano is an exciting opportunity: many chances to enter the profession are offered by companies with their own research centres or else by design studios, which range in size from the small to those that give work to hundreds of employees. Italy is without doubt the chosen land for people looking for work in this sector, but in the wake of the growing interest in design numerous establishments have been set up in almost every part of the world. Even industrial design applications are extremely differentiated and within the profession this often leads to the creation of specialists, who nevertheless maintain their basic eclecticism. The aim of the industrial designer is vast and, just to give an idea, can go from furniture design to the design of instrumentation or mass market products.
