Master Program in Product Design
Taught in Italian or English
The Master’s Program in Product Design is a graduate level laboratory for postProduct design. Students and faculty are actively exploring how to design for new social conditions in which behavioral, material, technological, and natural landscapes are shifting.

We stress process, with an emphasis on research, conceptualization, communication, and appropriate form giving.
The program itself is a-year-long: curriculum consisting of studio, methods, and seminar course content is integrated around studio-based projects. Projects range from the development of new urban industries to incubating independent publishing labels for hard and soft design. By providing research proposals, future studies, and case studies, we are promoting a new, more pro-active role for design education. Because design is a collaborative profession, most studio projects will be team-based. The final semester of the program is devoted to a master’s thesis in which the candidate will work more independently with a group of internal faculty and/or outside professionals to develop a thesis project that must advance the candidate’s chosen field of study....
