Imagine. Code. Click, swipe, pinch. Interaction design is about creating a product, service, or space that interacts with the body or the mind through innovative technology. It is about the intersection of digital elements and everyday life; the creation of more intuitive user interfaces; the adoption of digital technology for enriched service experiences; the transformation of design visions into market opportunities. In the Master in Interaction Design program, you will gain the theoretical knowledge and professional skills you need to define problems and solutions in interaction and user design. You will analyze and experiment with software and hardware technology in order to develop confidence with the palette of tools and platforms that form the foundation for designing interactive solutions. Domus Academy’s “learning by designing” approach is based on the tradition of Italian mentorship in design. You’ll work directly with companies to develop concepts, scenarios, and strategies based on the use of interactive and digital technology in everyday life. Audience The program is designed for candidates who have a first-level degree and/or professional experience in product design, visual and graphic design, media and Web design, architecture, computer science, engineering, communication science, psychology, or sociology. Outcome During this degree program, students will: Complete a self-driven conceptual research project according to professional standards. Create innovative concepts, solutions, and experiences in interaction design for diverse industries and sectors. Demonstrate a professional level of cooperation and deadline management within a multicultural team. Program The Master in Interaction Design program is structured as an exploration of research and design experiences that not only provides the tools for helping students to understand how things are done, but also assists them in deciphering the reasons why they are done. You will develop theoretical knowledge and professional skills for practicing interaction design within corporations and design consultancies; identify the features that characterize a specific user experience; envision future scenarios; and develop competence in selecting and applying methods, tools, and resources for running a design-driven project. The program is workshop-based, supported by seminars, lectures, tutorials, and fieldwork. Industry professionals, the course leader, and project leaders guide students via individual coaching and project mentorship. The program consists of four main modules, each of which includes a two-week course and six-week workshop. The modules are followed by a two-month internship period and a final portfolio presentation. The modular structure is customizable, allowing flexibility and variety to better serve each student’s needs and goals. Courses Coursework focuses on: Exploring the nature, languages, and values of the contemporary design scene Analyzing new aesthetic and behavioral trends in the marketplace Prototyping for interactive products and services, using basic software and hardware Investigating methods and tools for research and design Exploring the factors that determine the economic performance of a brand or company Branding your own work Workshops Guided by industry professionals and faculty project leaders, you will work in cooperation with leading companies on practical projects relating to interaction design. Some possible workshop topics include the following: Explore the design process from the point of view of people and their activities in everyday contexts. Learn to decipher people’s needs, expectations, and desires; develop use scenarios; and create and validate solutions. Develop projects within the domains of physical computing and haptic interfaces (user interactions involving touch) within a spectrum from simple reactivity to full interactivity. Use a mix of communication strategies and design tools in order to develop the global brand identity of a small to medium-sized company, a product line, and/or a startup. Develop a proposal that combines design approaches in a new, innovative, and surprising way. Your project might involve an established brand, an emerging company, a company that wishes to reposition its business, or a new venture. Portfolio The final element of the program is the portfolio review. You will present your portfolio of work completed during the year in front of an exam board for evaluation. Internship There is no better way for you to gain experience in your field than actually working in it. The internship is a chance for you to work onsite for a company or design studio in your field of interest—while applying all the strategies you learned in the classroom and in workshops. Alternatively, you can complete an intensive project in collaboration with a company on the Domus Academy campus. Either way, you’ll get an inside perspective on how your industry really works, and you can make important connections that will further your career. The internship lasts two months and comes at the end of your year of studies. 100% of our students participate in the internship, including non-EU students, who may extend their visas for up to one year to complete this portion of their studies.

Master program in INTERIOR ARCHITECTURE - New forms of contemporary living The Master examines the space designed both in its aesthetic and functional aspects and in those, less obvious, methods of use and symbolic values. It emerges a dual path, starting from the instinct of men to make room, placing its own habitat, investigates the performative value of built, depositary of the fundamental values of the community. Suggestions and theoretical stimuli become the material on which it's possible to develop the project activity focusing all attention on making concrete what elective scope of a designer. Objectives and teaching methodology Design is experiencing a time of strong momentum and spreading. The rapid evolution of production methods and lifestyles increasingly requires adaptability and innovation. Anticipating and stimulating change has become one of the main drivers of growth and competitive factor of contemporary economies. The traditional disciplinary boundaries are overwhelmed by the need for greater interaction, ability to work in groups and technology transfer. Designers are required to know new tools of representation and sharing of information as well as to improve skills of listening to the needs. However, new opportunities open for designers who are asked to draw on the wealth of traditional knowledge without conditions or obligations formal style. The product of creativity, also applied to a theme as old as the living, can become a software that helps us orient ourselves or an interface to manage a home automation application but in any case it must be time to take advantage of new knowledge to improve the welfare and meet the need for comfort. It seems clear, even from this brief introduction, that the master is not intended only to transfer a pre-established knowledge and consolidated experience as the use of techniques, materials typical of other fields such as literature, chemistry, neurosciences, cinema, computer science. Finally we want to give space to the themes typical of professional practice and management of the project and to the team of employees that the customer, considered part of the quality of work of the designer. In addition to the conscience of the economics of the project, students IAAD must acquire the ability to do marketing of themselves - essential to present and understand their work and their skills. During the course, great importance is given to presentations and design contest: students are encouraged to make presentations of their work and supported to participate in national and international contests: the projects must not only meet the designers, but they must be able to be appreciated and understood by juries of experts and the public. FACULTY Professionals working in the respective academic subject sectors, who know the main players of the sector and the skills needed to be competitive in the job market, make up IAAD teaching staff.

Master in New Media Communication and Interaction Design

IAAD Istituto D'Arte Applicata e Design
Campus Full time 9 months March 2017 Italy Turin

IAAD Master in New Media and Interaction Design has been conceived to help fill the gaps in the current educational system regarding this very strategic sector, answering the growing demand from companies, private and public organization for professionals with specific and diversified skills linked to the development and the new opportunities of the digital world. [+]

Contemporary society moves its first steps towards "artificial intelligence". This expression may sound bombastic, but the essence of the phenomenon can be synthesized in a few words: many tiring activities that today weigh mainly on human intelligence are steadily being transferred to computers, which are finally able to read the semantic meaning of raw information, creating a vast network of benefits and profits. Modern digital environments, and the "artificial" intelligences that are developed in and from them, are deeply changing jobs in every sector, at every level. Many new professions are being developed in this setting, and it's not a case that most of the EU funding being placed in 2014 and onwards is going towards a "digital agenda". IAAD Master in New Media and Interaction Design has been conceived to help fill the gaps in the current educational system regarding this very strategic sector, answering the growing demand from companies, private and public organization for professionals with specific and diversified skills linked to the development and the new opportunities of the digital world. Master objectives and method. The Master's key objective is to form professionals capable of dialoguing through digital media, who comply with "netiquette" and community participation modalities, and, above all, are able not only to realize an integrated platform or a digital marketing campaign, but also to evaluate their performance and development potential. The Master's ambition is to work as an innovation hub, a place in which aspiring communicators can be trained in a continuous interchange between theoretical, practical and experimental phases, allowing comprehension and management of all stages of new media design. To train young professionals, IAAD recreates a professional environment in its didactic plan. One of the distinctive traits of IAAD method is the constant collaboration with sector-specific companies and firms in order to realize bound projects. Both the partner companies' business requirements and IAAD's teaching requirements converge in these projects, creating a situation that is doubly positive: aspiring designers have the opportunity to work with companies that are leaders in their sectors and companies can monitor and invest on future talent. This system also allows to simulate working conditions in a professional environment: work is conducted under specific deadlines, correcting projects during their execution phase by following client feedback, through team and objective-oriented work. The Master Program is structured in 3 macro areas. One is focused on specifically "creative" skills (Creativity Techniques, Art Direction in New Media Environments, Content Editing in New Media Environments, Web Platforms Design, Mobile App Design, Audiovisual Broadcasting Design, Digital PR & Social Media Networking), another on the cultural and informative background necessary to those looking to perform these new professions (Digital Economy Sociological Models, History of New Media, Digital Marketing Models, Big Data &Internet of Things), and the third one on technical skills and competences (User Interface Design, Project Development Techniques, Web Platforms Development, Mobile App Development, Edge Interactive Technologies). A strong focus is also placed on Semantic technologies (Semantic Web, Semantic Engineering, Ontology Application Development) representing the culmination and the fulfillment of all the didactic path. These disciplines are taught and examined in depth not only from a theoretical-conceptual point of view, but also looking at their actual application in media, marketing (R&D, design, advertising), educational and entertainment. Students will be asked not only to recognize the business aspects of the project, but also to gain the marketing skills to promote themselves - essential to present and explain one's works and talents. Presentations and contests are highly rated during the Master. Students are encouraged to prepare presentations for their work and supported in participating in international and national contests. Master module - three macro areas Design & Development In new media, it's very hard to separate the actual design phase (graphic design, interface design) from the application development. This is why the Master addresses these two proficiencies conjunctly, declining them by type of communication instrument: web platforms, mobile applications and audiovisual platforms. Digital PR Many new professions, focused more on multimedia content than on the implantation of technical solutions, are flourishing in new media: community and social media manager, professional blogger, e-reputation manager, transmedia web editor, all line advertiser, etc. Roles and accordingly different work undertones abound. The Master allows gaining familiarity with the main skills involved: benchmarking analysis, digital metric analysis, real time monitoring, influencers selection and hire, etc. Semantic, Big Data & Internet of Things Semantic technologies allow computers to read the meaning of messages and then act or react accordingly. Among others, two remarkable relapses take place: it possible to intercept and analyse huge fluxes of information, often of different origin and format, to obtain new statistical informations (big data), and connect entire network of computers to allow them to communicate and interact without the necessity of human intervention (internet of things). The master dedicates many didactic resources to these branches of knowledge. During the academic year IAAD will organize didactic visits to companies, exhibits and museums, special workshops, meetings with prominent sector professionals (possible costs will be at the student's expense). FACULTY Professionals working in the respective academic subject sectors, who know the main players of the sector and the skills needed to be competitive in the job market, make up IAAD teaching staff. Lecturers will be instrumental in helping students improve and comprehend which aspects of one's professionalism need to be perfected to enter the job market with a lead. Contributions of excellence IAAD believes in the value of cultural and experiential contamination, opening the doors of the university to professionals known nationally and internationally, experts who contribute to the didactic, leading workshops, seminars and lectures. Students will have the unique opportunity to interact with "gurus" of the sector, who will join IAAD faculty as Visiting professors. Requirements and admission procedure.

Master in Musicology: Music, and Cultural Practice in Europe (MusEur)

University of Pavia
Campus Full time 2 years October 2017 Italy Pavia

The Master in Musicology: Music, and Cultural Practice in Europe (MusEur) is a full-time, international, two-year program entirely taught in English and designed for students from all over the world. [+]

The Master in Musicolog:, Music, and Cultural Practice in Europe (MusEur) is a full-time, international, two-year program entirely taught in English and designed for students from all over the world. The master addresses European musical culture, from its creations and compositional techniques to the discourse surrounding music that has developed over the centuries and present-day management of musical heritage. The two-year program aims to provide the methodological fundamentals, the analytical skills and the cultural background for higher level musicological research and, more generally, to allow students to competently participate in current discussions of music. In the academic panorama, musical knowledge appears nowadays to be complex and multifaceted: it includes musical texts and theories, art and popular music, compositional tools and conceptions of performance, the impact of media on musical experience, and the functions of music in different social contexts. The Master prepares students for this composite and interdisciplinary knowledge, which is now a fundamental prerequisite for doctoral programs in Europe and America. The skills acquired also provide access to careers in high-level institutions dedicated to conserving and promoting musical resources, and professions that involve transmitting musical culture or conceiving and managing cultural events with musical content. The Department of musicology and cultural heritage, which hosts the program, is part of the University of Pavia, but it is located in Cremona, Claudio Monteverdi’s native city. In 2013 it ranked first for academic production among all Italian departments comparable for size and sector of research. It is made up of distinguished scholars who represent all fields of musicological research and have gained international recognition. A long history of exchanges involving both students and instructors has consolidated the Department’s position within today’s global academic debate. The teaching staff’s areas of specialisation range from historiography to music theory and philology, ethnomusicology and popular music studies, covering the entire chronological span from classical antiquity to the 21st century. Our wide and finely articulated didactic offer guarantees a complete and competitive training. Many ex-students of this Department have found positions in European and non-European universities, while others are employed by prestigious institutions dedicated to the conservation of musical heritage or concert activities, bearing clear witness to the wide scope of the education available at Cremona. Students of the program will be part of a dynamic intellectual community that encourages direct contact between professors and students and offers an extremely up-to-date library along with the most modern databases in the field of music. Furthermore, thanks to the work-experience seminars and presentations organised by the Department, students will be able to establish first-hand contacts with the music world (theatres, archives, music editors and the media). The courses will be distributed over three semesters. In the fourth, students will attend a workshop on Musical Archives and Libraries, complete an internship and write a master’s thesis. The curriculum of studies deals with three main areas: History, Theory and Text focuses on the different types of text through which European music is handed down: manuscripts and scores, theoretical writings, concert critiques, institutional documents. Music and Stage deals with the various aspects of music written for the stage, from Monteverdi to the present day. Music in Society and Media explores the relationships between music and society and their different conceptualizations in theory, in addition to the role of music in multimedia production. [-]

Best Masters in Arts in Italy 2017. Master Fashion Merchandising & Buying The modern travel bag, the little black dress, fragrances, open toe shoes, women’s trousers, bikinis, leather boots, the destructured jacket for men, skinny jeans, sunglasses at night, avant-garde shapes and cuts, these are only few of the products that created new eras and defined contemporary lifestyle along the decades. Great products are key as they reflect the spirit of the time, always repeating and yet always changing: menswear is the new womenswear, leather goods turned from accessory to core category and womanswear is challenged by wearable technology and the ultimate perspective of invisible-wear. Merging and combining categories and roles brings to the forefront the importance of ‘who is actually working alongside designers’ in production. These experts preserve know-how and foster innovation, they check trends and maintain brand identity by maximizing creativity and balancing the collection. Furthermore, the success of e-commerce is redefining the role of the store, always less point of sale and increasingly a meeting point where techniques of up-selling and cross-selling are fundamental, as well as the ability to visualize the product in a creative way, not only in the store window. This course creates an expert profile in fashion products, someone that understands the new scenario, is involved in production and retail, or, an expert that is the vital link between the two. DESCRIPTION The Fashion Merchandising & Buying program follows the product life-cycle and product mix looking at width (production, delivery, retail, exposition,) and focuses on 3 main areas: Fashion System - trends, materials, products, brands, trade fairs, online and off-line shops Management Tools - fashion buying and merchandising techniques, operations, retail management, visual merchandising Focus on Categories - specifics for buying and merchandising in apparel, knitwear, leather goods, footwear and fragrances The program includes field trips, guest lectures, and a final project portfolio. HOW TO APPLY The course is open to graduates (or equivalent) holding a valid academic degree. Applicants with no academic degree but with significant previous experience in Fashion will be considered. English language is required (both written & spoken). Candidates will be selected after completion of a written test and interview with the Head of Department. EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES Merchandising Manager Product Manager License Manager Operations & Logistics Manager Customer Relations Manager Distribution Manager Buyer Merchandiser Retail Manager Visual Merchandiser Potential employment placement: contracting firms, fashion branding, buying offices, major retailers, free-lance consultancy etc. [-]
