Description

Nowadays, skilled designers can make it in the design world of the post-industrial and information era only if endorsed by a complex and sophisticated professionalism, which can autonomously master very dynamic and multi-disciplinary competences. A designers activity in fact, doesnt only involve the design and production of a service or a product, but it implies its promotion and marketing, as well as the aptitude to keep a constant dialogue with different actors and the handling of market rules which are often unconventional.

The Course

Stemmed from this viewpoint, the Domus Academy Master Course in Design offers a path of research, experience and design which combines the theoretical richness of an expert and innovative didactic system with the close and concrete collaboration of prestigious firms and professionals who chose to follow the students in their education.
The Master Course revolves around these three key points:

* Acquisition of an individual expressive language through the investigation and practice on the expressive codes of the design culture
* Development of a problem solving skill, typical of the design culture, and the buildup of an autonomous critical vision which can enable the students to effectively employ the gradually acquired practical knowledge within a problem setting approach.
* Reinforcement of a design direction vocation, namely the ability to integrate the design choices in a broader vision of management and in a corporate strategic project, embracing all aspects of the offer involved with the designed product or service, such as communication, distribution, service, corporate identity, relations

Students attending Domus Academys Master in Design are about to become professionals able to create and design products for the different fields of the industrial system.
The trained professional profiles are destined to found opportunities in several contexts, from companies (product, furnishing, materials) that are more and more creating their own research centres or structures for internal design, up to architecture and design studios, able to represent a consolidated reality both in Italy and worldwide and operating in different fields.

Contents

The Master course lasts 12 months, from January to December, with a summer break in August.
The program is divided into two semesters:
First semester. The first month is mainly based on a cycle of lectures with the aim of updating the skills the students have acquired in their backgrounds, and to bring them towards a common vision. After the second month, the training plans an intense workshop activity, sometimes in synergy with other Master courses, aimed at introducing the students in the designing world.

Second semester. Professors-designers present their research proposals for the different design areas. Each student will be asked to chose the design area closer to his/her sensitivity and interest and will work in direct contact with the professors and his collaborators. At the end of the course, each student will present to the examination board the Master project, which will be then exhibited together with the others in an exhibition organized and promoted by Domus Academy.
