IED – Istituto Europeo di Design Cagliari

Introduction

Service Design, Sustainability, Tourism, the Web and new technology.

A truly ancient city that has played a leading role in the history of the Mediterranean, Cagliari is now one of the areas that host the world’s greatest concentrations of Information Technology companies.

IED Cagliari focuses its training curricula on developing service design oriented towards such new sectors as sustainability applied to renewable energy sources, the quality of life in large contemporary cities, and new technologies applied to the media and to training.

More generally, training here focuses on the new approach to the concept of wellness that takes in everything from the individual to the city and its surroundings.

These thematic areas are main threads for developing new clusters of training courses that will enable us to generate structured projects with partners in the public and private sectors.

The new training project applies an emerging discipline - design services - in a strategic area for the Italian and Sardinian economy - tourism - to respond to a specific need: one is to create a tourism offer upgraded to international standards, the other involving local communities to ensure "authenticity of the experience." The placing of a master of this type in Cagliari has a highly strategic and symbolic value: Sardinia, with its established brand and with its characteristics of insularity, uniqueness and diversity together, provides the appropriate conditions for the study and experimentation a real ecosystem of tourist offers connected and interdependent. The design of services is the main focus of the training and includes the acquisition of knowledge, methods and tools typical of the design thinking, visioning and techniques of lateral thinking, studies on users, mapping and structuring of experience, elements of management , participatory design and rapid prototyping. Participants are enabled to become professionals capable of designing the different tourist experiences and related services, not only according to organizational and management needs, but above all, and here the distinctive character of the training, through a design-oriented approach. The goal is to reinterpret the idea of ​​tourism, linking it to issues of territorial development, social and technological innovation, environmental sustainability. Fundamental in the master are established connections with global players: tour operators, destination managers, hotel chains, cruise operators; local communities, government; and, not least, the users themselves, the tourists, in a dual optic user-centered and community-centered. Strategic objective of the master is then reconnect the global flows of tourism to the area and create new places of discovery and encounter between locals and visitors, triggering processes of co-design and co-production and integrating services already in place. Who should attend: The course is open to all who are in possession of a degree (even three years) or equivalent title (graduates of private schools at the university level) in disciplines such as architecture, engineering, design, economics, and belonging to the humanities (prior interview evaluation); It is also aimed at those who have equivalent professional experience in the subject area of ​​the course.
