Masters in Arts in Milan in Italy. The Politecnico di Milano Design School jointly offers this Specializing Master with the POLI.design, Consorzio del Politecnico di Milano. The program was founded to meet the strong demand for training in the pleasure-cratf segment. The yacht's market requires professionals with specialist post-university training. The Master is completely in English. Goals The Specializing Master provides the tools for managing the design and construction of sailing and motor boats, from project brief to definition of general plans, hydrostatic and hydrodynamic calculations, fitting-out of interiors, deck and board equipment, boat systems, production in the yard and control of executive stages. Participation in the Specialising Master allows students to achieve the following training goals: development of planning skills, in particular problem setting and problem solving skills in the leisure boat market; development of specialised technical skills; acquisition of principles and procedures of construction methods and techniques; development of skills related to production organisation and shipyard management; development of the ability to work in a group and to present oneself with authority in the professional world; ability to manage conflicts in the team and to encourage creativity. Professional Outcomes Upon completion of the Specializing Master, students are ready to enter the workforce as specialized professionals, including building on the training prior to entering the program. Over the years, professional outcomes have included assistant designer in specialist design studios, production assistant at shipbuilders, shipyard production manager, and quality-control supervisor. Degree Awarded Upon completion of the Specializing Master, students earn a first-level Politecnico di Milano Specializing Master Degree. Venue The Specializing Master is held at POLI.design, Consorzio del Politecnico di Milano, via Durando 38/A, Milan, Italy. Market The need to train people to work in the yachting sector is based on the rapid and exponential growth recorded by this sector in recent years. This growth has been further encouraged by the issuing of provisions to encourage the development of this market (from simplifying procedures for port construction, to reducing the tax burden on recreational boats over 10 m. etc.). For this reason, the sector shows today a strong professional vocation, with regard both to the skills necessary to the design of recreational boats, their components, and accessories, and to the management of the different stages of the production process. In particular, the sector is going through a stage of strong growth and development in quantitative and economic terms, although full maturity has not yet been reached. This lag is explained partly by the current lack of executives able to manage and direct this phase of change. Course Program A ship, whether sailing boat or motoryacht, is a complex product that integrates several systems for propulsion, living quarters, and various accessory functions. Every decision about one of the technical systems (hull, appendages, interior layout, propulsion, onboard equipment) also affects all the others. A yacht, whether made series or as one-off, calls for many different construction techniques and a variety of materials. Its interior will reflect design language and fashion, while market competition tends to imbue every ship with a certain amount of innovation. The Specializing Master takes this complexity into account and intersperses classroom experience – nine learning modules that outline different disciplinary fields – with design exercises and visits to shipyards and companies active in the industry, as well as to applied research institutes. The principles of each field are explained and students acquire the skills to apply what they have learned in their designs. Their various special abilities are brought together in workgroups that are called upon to develop a series of work projects. Duration The Specializing Master lasts one year and is scheduled to start in February 2017. Classroom training represents a commitment of three to four days per week. The internship at a company in the shipbuilding industry or a design studio runs for 392 hours and is performed full time at the end of the classroom training. Learning Modules The course program consists of eight learning modules, plus a design workshop and the internship: Yacht Design: principles, methods, tools and rules, principles, methods, tools and rules of boat design; Design and representation, acquisition of manual and computer tools representing the project; acquisition of specific skills on dedicated software; Naval Architecture, acquisition of the skills needed to manage, during the design stage, know-how relating to: hull geometry, boat statics, resistance to motion, hydrodynamics, hydraulic modelling, fluid dynamics and aero dynamics, turbulence modelling; Shipbuilding, knowledge of the main construction methods, of the properties and characteristics of the materials used in the boats. Understanding and ability to identify innovations with regard to: material technologies and sciences, construction technique; On-board Systems and Propulsion Equipment, ability to understand the issues related to environmental management and acquisition of criteria for the choice of: motor and sail propulsion equipment, steering and monitoring equipment, equipment and fittings for deck, systems and on-board instruments; Interior Design, acquisition of design skills with strong focus on expressiveness with regard to: distribution of space and functional organisation, historic evolution of interior design methods, quality of finishing materials, methods of mock-up for monitoring choices; Production process and corporate organisation, methods and technologies of production of different boat elements and components: organization of production process; Empowerment, during the structuring of the educational programme an empowerment module will be developed, to train participants on the rationale and dynamics of change at the organisational and personal level, teamwork, relational dynamics and entry in the job market; Design workshop, integrated design exercise on topics identified during class. Exercises The Specializing Master integrates a variety of learning modules: metaproject analysis, defining the concept, and design exercises carried out in small groups as prerequisites to the planning workshops. The workshops offer a chance to try out the skills acquired during the learning modules, classroom exercises, and trips outside the classroom. The workshops are an essential part of the training process, which also includes visits to research organizations, production facilities, and professional studios. Internship The internship is required, lasts three months, and is carried out at leading design studios and shipyards. It enables students to transfer skills acquired during the course to a real-life design or production context and to deal with the world of shipbuilding.

Master in Musicology: Music, and Cultural Practice in Europe (MusEur)

University of Pavia
Campus Full time 2 years October 2016 Italy Pavia

The Master in Musicology: Music, and Cultural Practice in Europe (MusEur) is a full-time, international, two-year program entirely taught in English and designed for students from all over the world. [+]

The Master in Musicolog:, Music, and Cultural Practice in Europe (MusEur) is a full-time, international, two-year program entirely taught in English and designed for students from all over the world. The master addresses European musical culture, from its creations and compositional techniques to the discourse surrounding music that has developed over the centuries and present-day management of musical heritage. The two-year program aims to provide the methodological fundamentals, the analytical skills and the cultural background for higher level musicological research and, more generally, to allow students to competently participate in current discussions of music. In the academic panorama, musical knowledge appears nowadays to be complex and multifaceted: it includes musical texts and theories, art and popular music, compositional tools and conceptions of performance, the impact of media on musical experience, and the functions of music in different social contexts. The Master prepares students for this composite and interdisciplinary knowledge, which is now a fundamental prerequisite for doctoral programs in Europe and America. The skills acquired also provide access to careers in high-level institutions dedicated to conserving and promoting musical resources, and professions that involve transmitting musical culture or conceiving and managing cultural events with musical content. The Department of musicology and cultural heritage, which hosts the program, is part of the University of Pavia, but it is located in Cremona, Claudio Monteverdi’s native city. In 2013 it ranked first for academic production among all Italian departments comparable for size and sector of research. It is made up of distinguished scholars who represent all fields of musicological research and have gained international recognition. A long history of exchanges involving both students and instructors has consolidated the Department’s position within today’s global academic debate. The teaching staff’s areas of specialisation range from historiography to music theory and philology, ethnomusicology and popular music studies, covering the entire chronological span from classical antiquity to the 21st century. Our wide and finely articulated didactic offer guarantees a complete and competitive training. Many ex-students of this Department have found positions in European and non-European universities, while others are employed by prestigious institutions dedicated to the conservation of musical heritage or concert activities, bearing clear witness to the wide scope of the education available at Cremona. Students of the program will be part of a dynamic intellectual community that encourages direct contact between professors and students and offers an extremely up-to-date library along with the most modern databases in the field of music. Furthermore, thanks to the work-experience seminars and presentations organised by the Department, students will be able to establish first-hand contacts with the music world (theatres, archives, music editors and the media). The courses will be distributed over three semesters. In the fourth, students will attend a workshop on Musical Archives and Libraries, complete an internship and write a master’s thesis. The curriculum of studies deals with three main areas: History, Theory and Text focuses on the different types of text through which European music is handed down: manuscripts and scores, theoretical writings, concert critiques, institutional documents. Music and Stage deals with the various aspects of music written for the stage, from Monteverdi to the present day. Music in Society and Media explores the relationships between music and society and their different conceptualizations in theory, in addition to the role of music in multimedia production. [-]
