Masters in Urban and Regional Planning in Milan in Italy. The Specializing Master in Color Design and Technology aims to provide advanced training to professionals, so as to enable them to understand and manage the many technological and design issues, often across many disciplinary areas, typical of all those professional and research sectors in which the use and management of color are essential. Examples of such production areas include industrial product design, interior architecture, communication, fashion, entertainment and urban planning. Particular attention will be paid to analyzing and summarizing utilization, control, ideation, organization and planning through the use of color. Consequently, color is not treated as a simple attribute of objects or surfaces, but as a means of expression and design underlying perception and interaction with reality.
The Specializing Master consists of two phases. The theory and technique based phase aims to train students in the technical aspects of measurement, control, digital reproduction and comparison relating to disciplines such as physics, optics, colorimetry, chemistry, psychology and perception. The second phase focuses on the methods learned, which will be contextualized and experimented with in different color application and design areas such as interior design, urban spaces, industrial products, fashion and communication.
The Specializing Master aims to produce an innovative professional figure, widely in demand by the market, with advanced technical and design skills concerning color use and control and color design in research and in several sectors such as interior design, urban planning, industrial product design, fashion design and communication. At the end of the course, students will be able to professionally manage multidisciplinary aspects relating to the study and management of color and will be able to work in a variety of firms and companies in the fields of interior design, urban planning, industrial products, fashion, communication, paints and dyes.
After completing the course and on passing the final exam, the 1st level Specializing Master "Color Design & Technology" certification will be issued.
The Specializing Master grants 60 CFU, equivalent to 60 ECTS.
Ten didactic units and the internship compose the didactic plan. The first four are dedicated to provide insight into historical, technical, cultural and theoretical knowledge related to the use, measurement and history, to the perception and management of color. The next five have practical nature, aiming to develop the student abilities in designing and using the color in interior, urban space, product design, communication, fashion. Empowerment supports the student's process of personal and professional growth by developing the ability to form relationships and to work successfully in a variety of dynamics. At the end is scheduled an internship in a company in order to transform the skills acquired during the course into practical experience in the field.
