Program Description

Master in Transportation Design

IED – Istituto Europeo di Design Torino

The two-year Master course in Transportation Design is an advanced training programme designed for Italian and foreign professionals. It provides specific analytic, critical and methodological skills for the creation of innovative and stunning vehicles while developing a personal design style. Thanks to an on-going relationship with companies and design centres, it contributes to the creation of very sought-after profiles. The Master course represents a unique training offer, because not only it prepares students in the Transportation Design field, but it also allows to specialise in the Car Interior Design and User Experience and the Exterior Design majors.

Career opportunities – Graduates from the Car Interior Design major can work as Experts in multimedia products for automotive companies, design centres and firms active in the development of user interaction interfaces. At the end of the Car Exterior Design major, students can hold positions as Car Exterior Design Experts able to face design projects from the concept to its prototype creation.

Target - Admission to the Master course is open to graduates in all design fields, as well as to professionals with at least two years of work experience in the automotive sector. Applicants can also be directly admitted to a second year’s major.

Methodology and structure – The first year gathers students coming from different backgrounds, providing shared theoretical and design basis. Key-element is the Design Method: from the idea to the final product, going through the important choice of proper tools, software and skills for project development.

At the end of the first year, participants can choose the second year major: Car Exterior Design or Car Interior Design and User Experience. Both the specialisations receive a commission from a Design Centre for a concept car project, letting students become involved in what, to all intents and purposes, is a true work environment. They work on the same project, but focusing on different aspects. Both of them also deal with some mutual discipline and workshops, which provide in-depth analyses about Advanced Design and Interface Design.

Car Exterior Design students deal with all the different stages of the drafting and with the problems faced by a style centre, the final objective being the production of a full size scale model.

In the Car Interior and User Experience major, students focus on the interiors of the car using the most advanced technologies to develop interactive platforms and interfaces. They deal with planning and timing by facing a real case study, then they work on the design phase with the concept creation.

The Final Project consists in a unique mock-up joining the efforts of the students coming from both majors.
