Master's degree in product design


Program Description

Ten extraordinary months. Ten international designers in the classroom, one monthly, with their key figures. Ten unique opportunities to learn directly from the protagonists. Master of Raffles Milan. Finally somebody thought of us.


Why do design projects that seem to have all the cards in place do not pass the test of the market? Is there a recipe for success? The answer is: there are no recipes. There is the talent, the energy, the seriousness of the project. There is an understanding of the complexity of the world, and the ability to mold on it. There is tenacity, analysis and learning.

Professional Opportunities

The Master is designed to provide students with a methodology and skills toolbox that puts them in a position to design products efficiently in a wide range of industry sectors.

Who is

The Master is designed for graduates in Design and Architecture, as well as young designers, designers and curious professionals who are eager to open up to new aesthetic horizons. They will be the future protagonists of creative design. They will write the design agenda of tomorrow, companies, architecture and design studios, research groups, large global organizations, and even in contexts and professional fields that we still can not imagine.


Students have the opportunity to experience different approaches to design according to different types of interlocutors. Research design is extremely proactive in favor of unusual formal or constructive solutions. In the design design, the designer becomes a businessman capable of offering solutions that can be integrated into consolidated production but also able to emerge in terms of personality. Breaking design also leaves greater room for pure creativity, provided there is a basis for good research and good performance.


  • Know-how of materials and production processes.
  • Conceptual developments of new materials and surfaces.
  • Develop new aesthetics and graphics.
  • New products and new distribution models.
  • New frontiers of product: nomadic products.
  • New frontiers of production: the metamorphosis of 3D printing.


For the quality and effectiveness of the didactic model, the Master has obtained the patronage:

Association for Industrial Design
