Masters in Marine Technology 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. The training project to be carried out during the internship is agreed upon by the Politecnico di Milano tutor and the company mentor.
