Master in Product Design

Domus Academy
Campus 12 months September 2017 Italy Milan

The Master in Product Design program combines the study of theory with the process of direct experience. Besides honing the “problem solving” skills that every designer needs, you will also develop a “problem defining” approach: the ability to determine the true parameters of each design challenge. [+]

Best Part time Masters in Product Design in Italy. Think. Sketch. Make. A good product began as a need that a designer identified and brought to life in the form of an object or mechanism. It is a reflection of society. It is about potentiality, adaptation, discovery. The Master in Product Design program combines the study of theory with the process of direct experience. Besides honing the “problem solving” skills that every designer needs, you will also develop a “problem defining” approach: the ability to determine the true parameters of each design challenge. As you learn to follow your intuition and promote your aesthetic vision within those parameters, you will cultivate more awareness of the reasons behind your own design choices, and those of others. During your workshop collaborations with eminent professionals from local studios and businesses, you will have the range to experiment with design methodologies as you develop a deeper understanding of product design and its role in our world. Audience The program is designed for candidates who have a first-level degree in design, architecture, engineering, visual arts, or related disciplines. Outcome During this degree program, students will: Complete a self-driven conceptual research project according to professional standards. Create innovative design work based on an understanding of the discipline and the place of their work within that context. Communicate concepts, methods, and design proposals in spoken, visual, and written form. Program The Master in Product Design program is workshop-based, supported by seminars, lectures, tutorials, and fieldwork. Industry professionals, the course leader, and project leaders guide students via individual coaching and project mentorship. The program consists of four main modules, each of which includes a two-week course and six-week workshop. The modules are followed by a two-month internship period and a final portfolio presentation. The modular structure is customizable, allowing flexibility and variety to better serve each student’s needs and goals. Courses Coursework focuses on: Exploring the nature, languages, and values of the contemporary design scene Analyzing new aesthetic and behavioral trends in the marketplace Identifying key factors that make a successful design solution Defining and solving design problems Branding your own work Workshops Guided by industry professionals and faculty project leaders, you will work in cooperation with leading companies on practical projects relating to product design. Some possible workshop topics include the following: Analyze user activity and social behavior to solve product design problems; use narrative design tools, such as storytelling, storyboards, and video. Investigate ways in which a company can ignite innovations in product design and industrial processes by adopting advanced production technologies and utilizing new materials. Develop a proposal that combines design approaches in a new, innovative, and surprising way. Your project might involve an established brand, an emerging company, a company that wishes to reposition its business, or a new venture. As you explore the relationship between people and spatial systems, develop concepts that address design for social/personal spaces, business and retail spaces, or public spaces. Portfolio The final element of the program is the portfolio review. You will present your portfolio of work completed during the year in front of an exam board for evaluation. Internship There is no better way for you to gain experience in your field than actually working in it. The internship is a chance for you to work onsite for a company or design studio in your field of interest—while applying all the strategies you learned in the classroom and in workshops. Alternatively, you can complete an intensive project in collaboration with a company on the Domus Academy campus. Either way, you’ll get an inside perspective on how your industry really works, and you can make important connections that will further your career.

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.
