The Specializing Master in Transportation & Automobile Design is held jointly with Volkswagen Group.
Volkswagen designers suggest every year to the students a project topic and supply specialist teaching content. Volkswagen Group Design oversees design progress and selects sometimes the most promising students for internships at its style centers. The Transportation & Automobile Design Master’s program is a pathway to excellence for those who seek scientifically rigorous training to meet the professional challenges that automakers’ design departments are offering in this era of far-reaching change and radical innovation in the industry.
The goal of this Specializing Master is to train a professional designer to develop her or his own creativity, while innovatively integrating it with the academic knowledge specific to the syllabus. At the same time, the student is expected to experience the whole style-development process typical of the automobile industry. This Master’s is designed to enable graduates in industrial design, engineering or architecture who are interested in a career in automobile design to bring rigorous focus to their curriculum.
The Transportation & Automobile Design Specializing Master is made up of lessons, project seminars, workshops, and a final Master’s thesis. The course plan consists of 15 learning modules, selected so as to provide a mix that will assure the theoretical and practical knowledge essential to developing transportation-design projects with full awareness of the context.
