This demand has led to the creation of departments dedicated to interior vehicle design within the design centres of most of the bespoken automotive brands. This Master builds up also the experience of working in the automotive sector, with potential future career opportunities not only within design companies but also in the wider industry and design agencies.

The course is validated by MIUR as an Academic 1st Level Master’s Degree and awards 60 (CFA) credits, valid for continuing studies both in Italy and overseas.

Projecting interior spaces for cars means looking at the mobility starting from user experience as interaction man/car, as well as the purchase experience and the management of the bought item. In that regard the Master is a high profile course allowing students to supply new solutions connected to customer needs.

The Car Interior designer gets knowledge and skills to address the future and innovation of vehicles starting from the interiors, creating user-focused designs responding to cultural needs and adhering to current trends in terms of vehicle use and community trends.
