Master in Transportation Design

IAAD Istituto D'Arte Applicata e Design
Campus Full time 10 months May 2017 Italy Turin

IAAD department of “Car Body Architecture” first in Italy opened in Turin in 1978. Since 2008 it is entitled in memory of Andrea Pininfarina. [+]

IAAD department of “Car Body Architecture” first in Italy opened in Turin in 1978. Since 2008 it is entitled in memory of Andrea Pininfarina. The specialization in Transportation design deals with the study of the main means of transport with a focus on mobility systems and environmental sustainability. Turin is the undisputed world capital of automotive design and one of the centres of excellence in the international automotive industry: the great Italian production of Fiat, Lancia, Alfa Romeo and Ferrari, the design of Giugiaro and Pininfarina, Bertone, the automotive innovation of Centro Ricerche Fiat, the robotic technologies of DEA, Comau and Rambaudi, the innovation of Oxygen (electric alternative mobility), not to mention an enormous satellite activities that serves not only Fiat, but almost all of the major car manufacturers in Europe and the world. To confirm this today also Chinese design companies choose Turin as European seat. Thanks to this important supply chain, IAAD Transportation design department is flanked by a pool of important partner companies both public and private, which contribute to the activation of research projects, special lectures, workshops and seminars, company visits, educational activities and internships. MASTER OBJECTIVES IAAD have always had the goal of providing an innovative approach to training: the best way to become a professional in transportation is being apprenticed to learn from experts in the field. With this insight, IAAD is the first Italian university of higher education specializing in transportation design. The design work done in collaboration with IAAD partner companies which allow students to put into practice what they study in an environment very close to what they will encounter in the professional field. IAAD Master courses, thanks to this educational philosophy, are a perfect incubator for tomorrow’s talent, responding directly to the needs and market trends. To train young professionals within the educational programme, IAAD recreates what happens in the professional world. One of the hallmarks of the method IAAD is the constant collaboration with leading companies in the sector for the realization of joint projects. Converging in the projects both the needs of the partner companies and educational goals, creates a situation doubly favourable aspiring designers have the opportunity to work with industry leaders and these ones can monitor future talents to be included in their companies. This system also allows to simulate working conditions in a professional context: working with precise deadlines, correcting the work in progress by following the feedback of the customer, working in teams and goals. In this process, the teachers are key figures representing the connection between IAAD and industry. All the teachers are professionals in their respective fields of teaching, know the companies in the industry and know what it takes for young designers to be competitive on the market. Students find in Professors a valuable reference to improve and understand what aspects of their professional skills are to be refined to enter as protagonists in the world of work. During the course a great importance is given to presentations and design contest, students are encouraged to make presentations of their work, supported in participating in national and international contests. Projects must not only meet one designer favour, but must be able to be appreciated and understood by the jury of experts and the public. REQUIREMENTS AND ADMISSION PROCEDURES // Preliminary Module Graduates in Industrial Design, Automotive Engineering and related subjects, holders of a postgraduate diploma in Industrial and Transportation Design and candidates who have gained significant professional experience in the field of transportation can access the Preliminary Module.

Best Masters in Engineering Design in Italy 2017. The Master programme embraces the entire design development process by researching into new experiential concepts, redefining architectural solutions and moving forward with new criteria for comfort and efficiency. Today’s design paradigm must be brought into question in order to better interpret new aesthetic and social trends. The studio projects, organized in collaboration with major car companies, represent a proving ground to test the students’ ideas. In particular SPD has signed a long term educational partnership with Volkswagen Group Design involving the participation of designers from the various brands – from Audi to Lamborghini – into the teaching activites. After the initial exploration, students move forward into design concepts and their refinement up to both physical and digital modelling. It’s a long process that demands a high level of personal committment and flexibility, organizational and time management skills as well as a strong attitude to teamwork. Projects are subject to group critiques and critiques with outsider reviewers. Transportation designers thus acquire a constant spur to innovation both in form language and function, allied with the understanding of engineering and production processes. ADMISSION Upon selection the Master admits graduates in Transportation or Car Design, Industrial Design, Vehicle Engineering or their equivalents, and candidates who have gained significant professional experience in the field. The program has a limited number of places available. Applicants will be admitted upon selection based on the student’s CV, portfolio and on an interview. DURATION The Master lasts 15 months (from October to December of the following year, with a summer break in August). Attendance is compulsory and full time. The total workload of the course corresponds to 1500 hours/student encompassing lessons, class exercises, final thesis/research project and individual study. THESIS/RESEARCH PROJECT At the end of lessons, students finalize their research project in collaboration with the academic sponsor. INTERNSHIP Post-Master’s internship opportunities are available for high potential profiles at the end of the programme. LANGUAGE The Master’s course is held in English. QUALIFICATION After passing the final exam, eligible students will obtain a Master’s Degree from IULM and SPD. The Master corresponds to 60 ECTS credits. [-]
